A panoramic attempt at depicting the motif of the horse in Polish post-partition art, which featured the ethos of chivalry, struggle and heroism as well as tradition, customs and work associated with the gentry manor house and the countryside. Another component was the enormous sentiment and even love for the horse, the only creature to be endowed with a soul. The Polish mythology of the steed revealed a specific type of historical memory supporting the feeling of national identity, of great significance for generations living during the partition era. Artists resorted to traditional images of past centuries, created heroic narrations about the deeds of famous men and celebrated battles and knightly duties; here, horse and man are heroes enjoying equal rights.
