Camargue Horses of Southern France by Jude Lobe Click on image to visit website
This is a new painting at Hillsborough Gallery of Arts. It's acrylic on linen, 30X40 of the ancient breed of horse indigenous to the Camargue area in southern France. They live in the Camargue marshes and are known for their stamina, hardiness and agility. They are quite impressive to watch galloping through the wetlands in that region. The french government had set breeding standards back in the 70's to protect the purity of the breed.
