A Horse Galloping Through Brecon Museum

 

before the capture

of silver upon glass

 

it was a lucky guess

by the artist

 

to paint the correct gait

of a horse

 

the life-size portrait

of the Marquess of Bute’s

 

stud stallion

an arrested study of proportion

 

action

the feisty hero of the track

 

ready to leap

from the wall

 

intuition

a better wager than the photographic plate

 

that stable in its nitrate

repeats and does not create
