$6,800

About

Rare 19th century painting of a man is a buggy trotting quickly. Oil on canvas signed and dated 1872 lower center. Measures: 21" x 33.5" canvas and 27" x 39" including the frame. (March 7, 1814 - January 2, 1886) was a painter active in the Albany, New York region. He is remembered for his paintings of race horses for owners including Leland Stanford, Erastus Corning, and Eli Whitney, but also painted bust-length portraits of Albany citizens, dogs, and other animals. It has been hypothesized (see Ione) that Van Zandt traced his horse figures from lantern projections of Eadweard Muybridge's celebrated photographs. Van Zandt is buried in the Albany Rural Cemetery in Menands, New York.
