Wild Horse or Frightened Horse Leaving the Water is an 1828 lithograph by Eugène Delacroix. The atmospheric print features Delacroix’s most favored animal subject: the horse. Used to represent human suffering and imbued with mystical qualities, Wild Horse also reminds us of the work of French animalier sculptors from the Romantic period.
