Fred Stone is considered one of the pre-eminent equine artists in the world. His work adorns the walls and collections of the most notable and discerning art connoisseurs, including those of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the White House. It is a natural fit for one of world’s most famous artists to paint one of the world’s most beloved racing heroes and the hopes and dreams her first heir carries into the next generation.
This poignant and endearing image of racing’s Queen and her newborn foal captures Zenyatta’s nurturing affection as she gently nuzzles her mirror-image dark bay colt with the distinctive diamond blaze. It is a tender and and tranquil scene played out in countless pastures and barns across the globe, indicative of the special bond between mare and foal familiar to every horselover. Stone’s subtle and soft-hued brush strokes are the perfect complimentary touch to convey this precious moment in time.
