The Epitome of Saddlebred Art
|| Title of
the Saddlebred artwork below: CRITERION
The Saddlebred art of sculptor Patricia Crane has spanned many decades and is treasured in private and public collections across the world.
Two of her life size Saddlebred artwork portraits stand in front of two museums in
The museum quality Saddlebred art offered below, captures with utter accuracy of form and exactness of spirit the gait for which the Ameircan Saddlebred is most famous,
and for which the breed is unequalled, the full racking gait. Saddlebred artwork is personally
as important to the sculptor as to the collector of American Saddlebred
Art. The bronze depicts WC Criterion in a full rack - the containment of speed within exact form and
the champion flying balanced on one leg according to the
progressive syncopation of the racking gait.

19.5 inches tall x 27 inches long, plus walnut base.
Portrayed in motion, this sculpture depicts twelve hundred pounds
of living flame balanced on the tip of one hoof. The full "racking" gait of
a multi-titled World Champion American Saddlebred sets the criterion
for verve, brilliance and exacting artwork.
Patricia has created much in the way of
Saddlebred art in many sculptural media and various works can be viewed by
returning to the Gallery, the Homepage or using the links below. There are many
price ranges and sizes. Quite a few depict Saddlebred artwork, the ASB both in the show ring and out.
Equine art has existed since Paleolithic times. Saddlebred
art has existed since early American Colonial
times when this breed came into being. It is no surprise that the American Saddlebred is a favorite subject of artists. The breed's elegance and splendor of heart and stamina
coupled with their willingness to partner man has made it so. Their animation and extravagant yet contained motion is already a
living Saddlebred artwork fueled by their spirit. How could an artist not respond? The Saddlebred is a natural subject whose form and heart find their way into many art mediums: painting, drawing, photography
and sculptural media.
