Susan Carson Signed Original Oil Painting COA 36" X 24"From the owner:
SECRETARIAT THE HORSE THAT GOD BUILT LTD EDITION PRINT
A “select opportunity” is being offered to own a work of art and piece of history on the greatest racehorse who ever lived. The original oil painting depicting the 1973 Triple Crown Winner’s life is so unique the owner will not sell at any price. However, an agreement has been reached between the artist and owner to reproduce the painting in actual size prints signed by the artist.
The painting tells the story of the life, heroic triple-crown races, and death of the “The Horse God Built.” The central focus of the piece is a headshot of the great champion days before his death on October 4, 1989. He almost appears reminiscent as he gazes with a nostalgic look at memorable scenes from his life, as they surround him in a mural like history. The upper right corner shows him as a three month colt standing outside his foaling shed at the Meadow Stables in Doswell, Virginia. His great Triple Crown races are depicted by the winner’s circle at the #1A Kentucky Derby with his groom and jockey, his archival, Sham, in green and gold trailing him in the #3 Preakness, and his magnificent entry on onto the track at the #2 Belmont. My personal, favorite scene appears underneath the headshot. This depicts Secretariat in full body as he appears at stud on Claiborne Farms in Paris, Kentucky. To finalize the piece, his gravestone at Claiborne appears draped in roses, depicting the nineteen short years of his life.
The priceless, original oil was a commissioned masterpiece, done as a “one-of-a-kind” for a Midwest horse fancier and historian. The artist, Susan Carson, from Central Illinois spent a portion of her life following her youngest daughter, who works on the backside exercising these magnificent animals at such historic tracks as the Belmont. Susan’s use of color and line is outstanding in this artistic tribute to Secretariat. Her love of painting and equine images are apparent in each stroke on the canvas. The original piece will never leave the owner’s family.
