Dressage, London, 2012 is a testament to Jeremy Houghton’s ability in capturing movement. Here, Houghton has captured the energetic atmosphere as horse and rider make their way around the ring. Using his signature two-tone palette, he has depicted the graceful movements of the horse which conveys the visual narrative of the piece.
An unparalleled history of international commissions has shaped Houghton’s artistic career. His residencies have included the Ben Ainslie Racing America Cup, Windsor Castle for HM the Queen and being official artist for the London 2012 Olympics. This piece was made during the Olympics’ tenancy, to honour the dressage team winning gold.
