Triumph of Art

Another flying horse (allegorical), in a slightly similar pose to the last post, though I doubt it was a reference for the comic book cover (there was 89 years between them)—still, fun to compare.

Léon Bonnat — Triumph of Art — 1894

I am very partial to allegorical pictures, and wonder why more artists today do not try them. They are often inventive and cover interesting psychological and historical territory....
