Portrayed against the Buckingham House landscape, the first zebra in Britain was a gift to Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III.  Artist George Stubbs, best known for his sporting pictures, seems to have painted this work without a commission.  It remained with him throughout his life.  

I was delighted by the pairing of this Spanish marble with the zebra.  I added more color to my painted backdrop to pick up the the yellow in the marbled paper.  I first saw a painting of a zebra in a woodland setting in the home of my chic friend Leann and I am happy to offer it here.
