    Shows a stable in which an artist paints a portrait of an energetic-looking horse based on a real, but somewhat tired looking horse which a young stable lad holds nearby. The caption indicates the kind of horse which the painter aims to represent: 'In truth he was a noble steed, / A Tartar of the Ukraine Breed, / Who looked as though the speed of thought / Were in his limbs'.
