Next is Picassos Cheval a beautiful silkscreen print of a horse on heavy weight paper of one of Picasso’s line drawings of animals. His single line drawings are so simple but at the same time so powerful, as they create so much meaning from one single unbroken line. Picasso loved animals and kept a huge variety over his life-time, many of which appeared in his work, and particularly in his line drawings.

Lyrical by Wassily Kandinsky captures the movement of horse and man together in a beautiful expression of the experience of riding. Kandinsky sought a synthesis of the arts, in which meaning was created through the interaction of, and space between, text and image, sound and meaning, mark and blank space.
