Rich hues and striking images that capture a horse in motion combine to mesmerizing effect in this sumptuous silk scarf, inspired by the photography of Eadweard Muybridge. Muybridge first started photographing horses in 1872, when a challenge to prove whether all four hooves leave the ground at once during a gallop led him to invent a system by which the horse’s movement tripped wires that then released the camera’s shutters. He succeeded in his experiments by 1878, leading him to publish Animal Locomotion with the backing of the University of Pennsylvania. This magnum opus included 781 collotypes—photomechanical prints—that sequentially show how horses and other animals, including humans, move.
Racking (pacing); saddle; brown horse, Pronto, from the series Animal Locomotion. An Electro-Photographic Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Movements is part of The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs, Photography Collection.
