'Mares and Foals in a River Landscape' belongs to a group of paintings of the subject, produced mainly between 1760 and 1769. Painted for various aristocratic patrons, they are accurate portraits of specific mares famous either for their racing success or as the dams of successful racehorses. The naturalism of these works derives from Stubbs's careful observation of living animals and also from his anatomical studies of horses for 'The Anatomy of the Horse', published in 1766.
