Description: 

The artist truly captured the romanticism and vigor of the moment with a stylistic prowess. This scene captures an archer on horseback, richly costumed-wearing a long robed coat, and fur lined hat. The figure holds himself nobly while leaning slightly forward with reins in one hand. He controls his mount masterfully and casually resting his other hand on his hip while grasping his bow. The artist made a great effort to reflect the armory of the horseman, including finely detailed quivered arrows, and a sheathed sword. The horse as well is exquisitely detailed, with saddle blanket apparent, ornamental bridle and reins. To create the prominence of the horseman, the background is not as attuned, yet the sense of a forested hill and an architectural feature is alluded to. The artist creates a feeling of soft light filtering through a heavily clouded sky.
