The painter Philibert-Benoît de La Rue specialized in battles scenes and equestrian subjects. He worked in the studio of François Boucher for whom he drew animals, especially horses. He studied with Charles Parrocel. Drawn from life, the present study of a horse was probably executed in the Grande Écurie de Versailles where the artist was authorized to draw the horses in 1751 and 1753.

Drawing framed.
