Opus N°5 Galop

Here, even more than that of the bull, the horse is a pretext, the necessary support to represent the speed of a gallop. The movement is so apparent that the ears of the animal, flat to its head, merge with the mane and the neck. The rear legs are about to rest in order to free the right front leg to be propelled forward. The tail flies out to accentuate the impression of speed. As with the bulls the details are only suggested so as to prevent one dwelling on the anatomical aspect of the animal. The only plastic expression is the pace of the gallop in progress.
