Helen Hayse (American, 1913 ÔÇô 2003)
Oil on Canvas. Signed and Dated 1982. 23.5ÔÇØ T x 29.5ÔÇØ W. Commissioned by noted horseman Lou Teater. In the style of her mentor George Ford Morris, Helen Hayse has immortalized one of the breedÔÇÖs greatest show horses and sires, six-time Five-Gaited WorldÔÇÖs Grand Champion CHWing Commander. This is undoubtedly HayseÔÇÖs greatest work and it is the piece that most accurately captures the true color of Wing, as well as the riding style of his trainer, the great Earl Teater.
