Basil Blackshaw’s Horse captures the artist’s gestural technique and spontaneous application of paint. This freedom of expression is evident in the vitality and energy of the horse’s depiction, as it seems to emerge from the canvas. The graffiti-like nature of the work is reinforced by the inclusion of a scrawled date across the upper corner.
