ZEBRA’S are already some kind of fantasy beasts, with its dazzle paint hide. Put the animal in a temperate forest and you got a surreal picture. The British painter George Stubbs did it in the year 1762 when he made this oil painting. Stubbs was famous for immortalizing hoofed subjects. His most famous work is a portrait of Whistlejacket, a legendary racehorse. The owner of that horse listened to the catchy name Lord Rockingham.
