About the Artist

Jacques-Laurent Agasse was an animal and landscape painter from Switzerland. Agasse studied in the public art school in Geneva, where he was born. Before he turned twenty he went to Paris for veterinary school so that he could become familiar with the anatomy of horses and other animals. He is celebrated for his extreme devotion to art, his marvelous knowledge of anatomy, and his special fondness for English racehorses and his excellence in depicting them.
