Horse Tales: American Images and Icons, 1800-2000 is a collection of objects from fine art and popular culture that demonstrate the varied ways in which the image of the horse has infused American culture. Ninteenth-century artists include Frederic Remington and Currier and Ives. Among the twentieth-century painters, sculptors, and photographers are Thomas Hart Benton, Mary Frank, Elie Nadelman, Eadweard Muybridge, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Andy Warhol, and Susan Rothenberg. There are also installations and montages by contemporary artists.
