What a difference a year makes … The Cheltenham Festival took place last week but what a different landscape it was to last year, the horses may even have outnumbered the humans for the first time at Cheltenham Racecourse!
In the spirit of this fantastic sport, we have chosen to illustrate the above oil by Maurice Brianchon, an influential French Impressionist and Modern painter. Brianchon was best known for his luminous canvases depicting scenes at the French racecourses, including St. Cloud, Longchamps and here at Auteuil, a beautiful racecourse, the temple of French jump racing situated in the Bois de Boulogne, Paris.
We are so lucky to live in a village where horse riders holding up the traffic is an everyday occurrence, forget motor traffic, animal traffic is the norm….!
