Adriana Zaefferer is known as one of the best equestrian painters in the world, inspired by gauchos and polo players.  Adriana Zaefferer has painted some of the world’s champion race horses, including a portrait of Aureole for HM The Queen, and Northern Dancer, stud of studs, the most influential stallion of the 20th century. 

 

As a child she learned to ride with the gauchos  on her parents’ estate  in the Andes.  On a visit to London aged 18, she became a great friend of the racing community grandees, who  bought her paintings for their homes.   Her favourite word  for horses  is ‘romantic’ she admires the art of Sir Alfred Munnings more than the formality of  George Stubbs.
