Eclipse racehorse rennpferd thouroughbred Wahrheit - Wer die Wahrheit spricht brauch ein schnelles Pferd
"Who Speaks The Truth Needs A Fast Horse" (Eclipse first and the rest nowhere) - ca 110 cm x 140cm oil on linen © Fiona Hernuss
"Who Speaks The Truth Needs A Fast Horse. - Eclipse, fastest race horse of all times. By Fiona Hernuss, 2016, oil on Linen, 140cm x 120cm "Who speaks the truth needs a fast horse" - my interpretation of this reality and ancient proverb using the possibly fastest race horse in history until now- Eclipse (1764-1789) British Thoroughbred racehore bread by the Duke of Cumberland, as the symbolic figure. Eclipse's bloodline is said to still be found in 95% of all race horses today.  I was inspired by a specific painting of Eclipse by Sartorius John Nost (1771) - (bottom right image of this workflow.) Back in the old days the galop of a horse was depicted showing all four legs spread apart- this was before the gaits of horses were fully understood and analyzed with the help of the invention of photography and film. I try to show an anatomically possible position of the horse legs in reference to that time, while honoring the actual characteristics of the real Eclipse (whose sire was Marske and damsire was Regulus) - his white markings and unusually wide apart set of hind legs at the galop. This painting shows how I envision a modern-day version of Eclipse in a sort of grand leap - depicting exactly that leap of faith taken by those who speak the truth. ✌️
