Benjamin Robert Haydon, Studies of horse's hooves

Studies of horse's hooves, ca.1814-1820

Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786 - 1846)

RA Collection: Art

These drawings are preparatory studies for Haydon's painting, 'Christ's Entry into Jerusalem' (1814 - 1820, St. Gregory's Seminary, Cinncinati, USA). The painting was first exhibited at the Egyptian Hall in March 1820, and was bought in 1823 for £350 by Edward Binns. The picture was well-received, though the head of Christ was criticised by William Hazlitt.
