This painting is huge. The size of the artwork was on a scale that is usually reserved for kings.
Whistlejacket is probably Stubbs’ most famous work. The painting is among the top ten most popular paintings in the National Gallery.
Stubbs’ dedication to paint horses accurately is unprecedented. He carried out dissections and experiments on dead horses to better understand the animal’s physiology.

More about Whistlejacket
Whistlejacket was commissioned by the 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, Whistlejacket’s owner. Whistlejacket was famous for winning £2,000 in a race at York in 1759. The painting depicts the horse rising to a levade while slightly turning its head towards the viewer. Due to the lack of background, some have hypothesized that the painting is incomplete. However, the shadows cast by Whistlejacket’s rear legs on the ground suggests that the picture appears as Stubbs intended. The painting has been acquired by the National Gallery in London for £11 million through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
