766. George H. Bailey was born in Portland, Maine, in 1832, the son of a prominent auctioneer, and was first known for his landscape paintings. Bailey owned, trained, and raced horses in Maine and, at age 55, attended veterinary school and became what is now known as the State Veterinarian. Bailey was also known for encouraging Maine farmers to breed horses. In Bailey's time, Maine became famous for the high quality of what are now known as standardbred horses, which weren't as fast as thoroughbreds but raced at a trotting pace and were versatile enough not only to race but also provide transportation and be used as work horses. Bailey is highly respected today for his 19th Century equine images. The below oils are from the fine collection of the University of Kentucky's Art Museum, Lexington, Kentucky.
