Two horsemen, one on a black horse, the other on a white, race, full throttle, across this print. Each urges his steed to go faster. The horses race neck to neck, seemingly airborne, white horse in foreground and black horse immediately behind. The rider of the black horse has flung his arm out as the horse dashes with its head up. The rider of the white horse crouches tightly against his charger as the horse arches its head to the ground to gain a longer stride. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
