Henry Koehler enables racing and hunting to come alive under his brush. He also offers us behind-the-scenes looks at jockeys, horses, dogs and the special accoutrements of each sport. Among his collectors are prominent people from the political, social and sports arena. He has painted several commission portraits of well-known thoroughbreds but prefers genre pieces depicting horse-racing, polo games, and hunting in the field with horses. He also does studies of jockey figures before and after their race. Graduating from Yale University Koehler is a well-known illustrator and enthusiast in the world of equine art.
