Among British artists who depicted horses, we can also see Rinat Kuramshin, a Russian and British artist. Both during his life in Russia and during his creative work in Great Britain, the artist’s attention was attracted by grace, strength and unique esthetics of the noble creatures.

Rinat Kuramshin  said: “People in Great Britain have a special piety to the horse”. Indeed, we can see pictures of horses everywhere in Great Britain: in country houses, in apartments, in sculpture compositions in parks and in architectural ornaments”.  Also, the monarchs, the royal family and other citizens of the United Kingdom love horses. Queen Elizabeth II, the royal family, representatives of aristocratic circles not only keep many race horses but also possess collections of paintings dedicated to horses including works by Rinat Kuramshin.

Rinat Kuramshin’s  equestrian paintings, engravings and drawings are popular because he uses a wide range of artistic techniques. For example, when depicting moving horses, the artist uses special materials, a special technique and his own “floaty” style which turn his paintings to a very unique artistic phenomenon. While painting a horse, the artist pays attention both to the exterior and individual traits and character of the horse. When portraying a horse, the artist is supported by his academic education, good knowledge of hippological anatomy and a long experience in portraying. In his genre paintings like “Bathing of Horses”, “Horses on the River. Evening”, “Morning Road” and others the author uses multifigure compositions, sophisticated angles and conveys amazing moods of the nature through rich colours and shades.  As a result, the paintings show us real horses of different breeds and colours reflecting the history of man-and-horse unity.  

His mastery of painting and graphic materials enables the artist to create unique equestrian art pieces. Many horse breeders and experts are unanimous in their opinion that “… paintings by Rinam Kuramshin truly capture a delightful plastique, grace and strength of a horse in movement”.  Collectors, art-dealers and connoisseurs are attracted by individual and original style of the artist which  distinguishes him from many other artists. Rinat Kuramshin’s equestrian paintings can be seen in state, corporate and private collections of many countries.
