G Holiday
Horses & Soldiers A Collection of Pictures by the late Gilbert Holiday

A subscribed edition published privately by Gale & Polden Ltd, Aldershot

Pub 1938, 12" x 10", no page numbers, 75 tipped plates and illustrations from paintings and drawings including 21 colour plates bound in full grey linen, light foxing. good condition.

If we look into the sketches we see how wonderfully he has depicted the harness and tack, the traces all taking alevel strain without appearing too stiff and hard, the saddles and bridles all in beautifully supple and clean condition, and all this obtained by a few smudges of charcoal with the high lights flecked out with a stump of rubber. As you turn over the leaves of this book to that delightful watercolour of the Blues returning from Guard duty at Whitehall, everyone who sees it must admit that this alone qualifies hm for a place among the hierarchy of artists.
