Yale University Art Gallery

Detail of A Lion Attacking a Horse

We visited the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, CT over spring break and I was blown away! The diversity and quality of the permanent collection is impressive. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Stubbs painting and Remington bronze in person. Here is a selection of many of the equines I spotted on our visit. If you get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it. The architecture of the building itself is worth making the trip!
