Don Quixote by Anna Hyatt Huntington

She’s one of my favorite artists. Not only did she master human anatomy but she mastered horse anatomy too! This is one of the many great sculptures by Huntington at Brookgreen Gardens, south of Myrtle Beach SC.

This sculpture shows Don Quixote on his horse Rocinante after jousting with windmills. To me it looks like a testament to the spirit of the horse that he’s still on his feet and didn’t die there.

Don Quixote by Cervantes is one of my favorite books. I’d like to read it again and hear that song “To Dream the Impossible Dream”.
