The Motions of the Horse

ā€œCā€ is almost 8 years old and LOVES horses. She often draws about them in art, and recently hosted her class on a field trip to the barn where she boards her own horse. ā€œCā€ knows all about horse care, tack and the various breeds. She also knows quite a lot, it appears, about the way a horse moves. The next time her class comes for art, I think I will see what she thinks of the iconic painting by Marcel Duchamp, shown here.
Marcel Duchamp.
Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 (1912).
Oil on canvas. 57 7/8" x 35 1/8".
Philadelphia Museum of Art.
