George Stubbs was born in Liverpool, the son of a leather worker, and he spent his early career in the north, painting portraits and developing his interest in anatomy. Following a brief visit to Rome in 1754 he settled in Lincolnshire, where he researched his major publication, ‘The Anatomy of the Horse’. In about 1758 he moved to London, which remained his base.
Whistlejacket was foaled in 1749. His most famous victory was in a race over four miles for 2000 guineas at York in August 1759. Stubbs’s huge picture was painted in about 1762 for the 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, Whistlejacket’s owner and a great patron of Stubbs.
According to some writers of the period the original intention was to commission an equestrian portrait of George III, but it is more likely that Stubbs always intended to show the horse alone rearing up against a neutral background.
This painting is one of the centrepieces of the National Gallery collection, London, UK.
