[image][image]The ‘Horse' and ‘Shakespeare' exhibitions being held at the British Museum currently have in particular inspired much of the Art Prints Collection. From a print of a famous portrait of Shakespeare himself and historic Elizabethan paintings, to reproductions of the exquisite Jacques le Moynes nature watercolours. This beautiful watercolour painting of a Globe Artichoke is one of a set of drawings from a nature album by French artist Jacques Le Moyne (1533 - 1588). Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues was a specialist draughtsman of flowers and natural history during the Age of Discovery.

The Horse Art Prints include reproductions of many famous and well-loved paintings, from portraits of legendary racehorses back in history to works by Stubbs.
