(ANN) CAROL HURD (1935-) is the only daughter of Henriette Wyeth and Peter Hurd. Horses were an important part of her childhood on the Hurd ranch. She began drawing them at the age of five. The horse continues to be an important image for her, so much so that a horse appears in every one of Carol’s paintings.
“A horse is a beautiful expressive shape; it can be drawn realistically, or formalized and abstracted. It lends itself well to all of these forms. I think, among other things, it means freedom, intuition, spontaneity and power. It is an image that has an immediate impact on almost everyone.”
Carol lives and paints on the Hurd Ranch with her husband, Peter Rogers. Highly stylized, her paintings reflect a dreamlike quality, rich in mystery and movement. (http://www.wyethhurd.com/family.html#ch)
