Eadweard Muybridge’s famous photographic series that settled doubts about whether galloping horses touched ground or not, took over a decade to reach Brussels. I found a rather nice ink drawing used as backing for a watercolour, and became convinced that Ls. had just finished composing his next painting in the fall of 1889 when he came upon the photographs and thus had to start all over with the horses in de right positions. The ongoing body of work I named “L’affaire du Galop” is about this exciting controversy that changed the way artists would paint galloping horses ever after.
