The Singing Horseman Canvas Print
Yeats painted prolifically in the last two decades of his life and his paintings became increasingly visionary and ethereal. He remained sensitive to the hardships, suffering and loneliness endured by many people, and often addressed such subjects in his painting. However he also sought to communicate through his work positive heightened emotion, and revelled in the transformative and uplifting power of music and other forms of expression. In this, one of Yeats’s most jubilant paintings, a young man on a large, restless horse, clasps his hands together, casts his head back and sings aloud to the heavens.
