Goodwood Pays Tribute to The Horse Collaborating with Tim Flach for the Annual Summer Exhibition

CHICHESTER.- Goodwood has always been inexorably linked with horses from its rich history and early associations with hunting to international dressage, horse trials and carriage driving championships, to the public horse races established in 1802 and the celebrated Glorious Raceweek. From 1 August to 26 September, Goodwood House opens its doors to the public to showcase its beautiful art collection including The Horse, an exhibition of horse-related art from the Goodwood collection and work by British photographer, Tim Flach and leading British Sculptor, Nic Fiddian-Green. The summer exhibition, curated by James Peill, includes paintings by Wootton and Stubbs and a picture of the first ever horse box which was used to secretly transport the racehorse Elis from Goodwood to Doncaster; arriving fresh after the journey, Elis won the 1836 St. Leger.
