This large scale work created in the artist's Madrid studio is of a victorious stallion, the subject reflects agile masculinity and strength. Verdigris brushstrokes make reference to both the passage of time and the historical equine statues often seen whilst traveling in Europe. These statues embody the nobility of the warhorse and the power of his owner. Serrano interprets this traditional subject with a passion and sense of modernity that is unique and compelling.
