An original, hand-printed, hand-painted letterpress print—this is not a reproduction! This piece is part of the “Hold Your Horses” series, which depicts a variety of iconic horse breeds. (You can read more about the project on the blog.) There are 12 different designs in the series; you can find them all here.
This print depicts a blue-roan Andalusian horse. The Andalusian, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse or PRE (Pura Raza Española), was first bred in the 15th Century and has become a pillar of Spanish culture. Known for their thick, long manes and tails, the Andalusian is a strong, elegant breed. Depicted behind the horse is another Spanish icon: the Mezquita (Great Mosque of Cordoba).
This artwork was letterpress printed by hand on an antique Vandercook No. 4 press, on 100% rag (cotton) paper. Each print in the edition was then painstakingly hand-painted with watercolor. Each print is numbered, signed and dated.
