Everyone knows the evocative story of ‘War Horse’, the loyal and courageous equine friend of Albert, the young farm lad whose family are forced into selling Joey to the British Cavalry to help with the war effort in WW1; a horse who touches the lives of everyone he meets along the way and who Albert later scours the battlefields of France to bring home. Well now one of the UK’s foremost contemporary landscape artists, Bob Barker has pictorially revisited the tale which went on to spawn a novel, play and of late, a movie, to further – and graphically - perpetuate the appeal of the original account. Historically drawing upon the memories of the Yorkshire mill towns that shaped his own youth, Barker's hitherto work immortalises the light and shadows that have captivated him for a lifetime. Yet in this brand new autumn 2017 giclee on board limited edition release, the acclaimed fine art exponent has instead chosen to compositionally translate a much bigger, broader picture for the pleasure of one and all.
