Subject and Association Description"The White Horse is one of Lindsay's most successful attempts at using a purely linear engraved technique to create subtle greys rather then pure black and white. This technique is most effective when it is used on consciously archaic subject - in this case a silvery white heavy-hoofed Clydesdale standing against the lively texture of a leafy forest. Lindsay has used his graver to give the horse a mottled white texture emphasising the line of the body and coarse hair at the mane, tail and hoofs."
