Horse Anatomy A handbook for artists comprising the study of the proportion and action of the horse as compared to man, by Lewis S. Brown is an amazing labor of love by an artist who was inspired by the juxtaposition of the skeletons of a horse and of a man at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He worked on it for seventeen years doing extensive research into the anatomy, proportions and movement of horse and man and eventually published it in 1948.
He edited another book An Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists By Wilhelm Ellenberger.
