Date for the Diary: Most celebrated equestrian artist in the UK exhibits in Belgravia

Katie O’Sullivan, whose collectors include Duke of Edinburgh, Lord and Lady Lloyd Webber, Earl and Countess of Derby, will be exhibiting 35 new works in a solo exhibition running from 6th November to 28th November.

Born in London 1959, Katie is from an Irish family, and graduated from the Chelsea College of Art. She has been exhibiting her work since 1981, most often at The Osborne Studio Gallery, but also in New York City, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Married to the trainer Jamie Osborne, who keeps at least 70 horses in their stables at any one time, she lives and works in the middle of the racing scene of Upper Lambourn, Berkshire.

The late Sir Peter O’Sullevan, the Voice of Racing, who was Chairman of the Osborne Studio Gallery, describes her painting with his usual mastery: “Katie is quite simply one of the most original and beguiling interpreters of the power and grace of the horse in the history of equine art.”

Her painting is never dull, she uses gold and silver leaf, paints over collages of old engravings.  Her subjects are not confined to thoroughbred racehorses and jockeys, but inspired by African wildlife and for this exhibition she has been drawn to the beauty and brilliance of birds.

Katie has been working for 18 hours a day to complete this portrait of thoroughbred stallion Northern Dancer, surrounded by portraits of his progeny, all champions.
