‘The Horse of Course’ by Jaime Corum

There are some certainties around Derby time: You will see horses, wonderful hats and art by Jaime Corum. Her paintings of her favorite animal are so realistic that they will inspire a yearning to see the real thing, no matter how citified you are. When asked what she’s painting, Corum often answers, “The horse, of course. As an artist, I get an endless range of visual and emotional inspiration from my equine muse. Taking the equine subject out of a specific context has always appealed to me because it leaves room for interpretation and gives the subject more symbolic flexibility. I hope to convey both the power and the subtlety of the horse, to show both the ideal and the individual simultaneously.”
