of the imported Arabian horses through paintings. ( not all came via the Blunt imports )
firstly the stallion Vonolel foaled in the Nejd in 1875 , purchased in Bombay as a Charger for field marshal Earl Roberts.

After serving as a Charger for 13 years which included a forced march for 313 miles, Vonolel came to England and took part in Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee procession. ( I will add more later , so keep an eye open for more )

Here is an image of Leopard, one of the two arabs presented to General Ulysses S. Grant who had a penchant for horses. It didn't fight in the civil war with him. I found this when going back through Eba's ancestry.

This painting is called Sobieski's Squire , not sure if that is the horses name but it is a painting of the king of Poland John the 3rd painted in 1850.

Love the grey arab painting, its very interesting to see how the essence of the Arabian has been captured for many years when lots of the earlier photos show a much plainer horse. Lovely thread Lynda

Haven't got the picture to hand, but the portrait of Napoleon crossing the Alps by David is believed to show him mounted on his famous war horse - the grey 14.1 Arab Marengo, named for the battle of Marengo - Arabs were Napoleon's preferred mount apparently

(Wellington's mount Copenhagen was by a thoroughbred out of a mare by the Rutland Arabian).

If you go on Ebay. Look under Art and then ask for Arab horses you will sometimes find these pics as pictures for sale from the States. Mine are not oil on canvas but made to look like it
They were cheap as can be, all I did was frame them in a very ornate wooden frame and now they look a million dollars!

I put these two behind glass.

There were at least two Marengos, and the David painting also exists in at least two versions showing him on a Spanish horse, one of which is tobiano pinto! So I wouldn't rely on it for any form of evidence.

You do have to be careful using paintings as a reliable source, since although some do represent the horse 'as is', others are more romanticised and they tend to exaggerate type. For example, if you looked at many Victorian illustrations, you would think that the typical British cavalry horse was a very extreme Arab, when nothing could be further from the case!

Landseer would paint what he saw so those two are what they are! animals in correct form.

I think the desert Arabians portayed were infact quite slight and wirey.

Thanks so much for these pics Lynda they are just brill.

Lynda, what a lovely thing to have done. That second to last picture is so famous, I remember it in pony annuals as a child. I have it framed and everyone that comes even those that dont have anything to do with horses comment on its beauty. I for one would like to thank you for taking the time
