Introducing Rakewell, Apollo’s wandering eye on the art world. Look for regular publications that offer a libertine perspective on art and museum history.
It had been a while since Rakewell had grappled with the My Little Pony phenomenon. So this was somewhat surprising to your pen pal a bit, let’s face it, curmudgeonly when they found themselves no entirely to hate the teaser for the next film on Netflix (released September 24). My little pony: a new generation seems to have a sense of humor about himself, with âWe’ll need some glitter, a lot of glitter,â being a call to arms that stiffens the tendons. The plot revolves around the unicorns losing their magic, prompting “a land pony” (questionable description) and a unicorn to retrieve it from the evil winged equine inhabitants of Pegasus City – and who doesn’t like a quest story ?
But what really caught your pen pal’s wandering attention was an invitation to something called “The Mane Event” at the National Gallery in London on September 20th. The equestrian paintings in the collection will be âmagically transformed into My Little Pony augmented art,â giving us the chance to âexplore new pastures in a cutting-edge AR experience animated by audio commentaryâ by the film’s cast. We can’t wait for horse whisperers to tell us about some masterpieces of equestrian art.
It is neither small nor pony, but surely Whistle must be the first stop?
Will Charles I keep his place on a more … multicolored horse?
The beautiful white horses represented by Rosa Bonheur in this version of her most famous painting are Percherons, but now is not the time for equine pedantry.
And maybe GÃ©ricault’s terrified horse would need rainbow-colored companions?
