From the cover: “In this book, the best and most representative examples of equestrian paintings produced in Europe during the last eight centuries have been brought together in a large collection of exceptionally fine photogravure plates. This ranges in period, style and subject from the formalized and highly symbolical mediaeval English book-illustration depicting Christ and His Knights, to the elegant and graceful painting of a modern racecourse by Degas, while re- presenting such great names in art as Uccello, Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Dyck, Stubbs and Delacroix.”
