Istabraq by Graham Isom.


Istabraq by Graham Isom.

Graham Isoms beautiful limited edition features Istabraq, one of the greatest horses of the century, on the way to winning the 1999 Smurfit Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham for the second year in succession. As in 1998, Istabraq was ridden by Charlie Swan and was eventually victorious in the biggest race in the National Hunt calendar by just over 3 lengths from a field of fourteen horses which included some of the most formidable names of the 1990s. From left to right, the horses prominently featured are: City Hall, ridden by Robert Thormon; Tiutchev, ridden by Mick Fitzgerald; Mister Morose, ridden by Carl Llewellyn; Bellator, ridden by Norman Williamson; Istabraq, ridden by Charlie Swan and French Holly, ridden by Andrew Thornton. Trained by Aidan OBrien and owned by the great Irish gambler JP McManus, Istabraq revelled in the bright and sunny conditions and on the good to soft ground. His success is a tribute to the work of the young colleague of JP McManus. John Durkan. who selected the horse on the grounds of his great promise but who died tragically frorn leukaemia before Istabraqs greatest triumphs. In his memory, the John Durkan Memorial Fund was founded by a number of his friends in the racing world to raise money to establish a leukaemia research body in Dublin called The Institute of Molecular Medicine. Istabraq, in Arabic, means to run like lightning.

Graham Isom

Graham Isom is possessed of what has been described by Horse and Hound magazine as a tremendous ability to paint horses in action. Graham Isom was born in 1945, in Kent. and brought up around his fathers riding school. where he first developed his love of horses. He studied at Ravensboune College of Art, where he specialised in sculpture. Having left college, he went through a series of jobs. including working as a groom in a stables on Dartmoor, labouring on a building site and running a shoe shop, and it was not until the late 1960s that he returned to the art world, when he taught sculpture and painting to A-level students in Dorset. After five years as a teacher, his private commissions increased sufficiently to enable bun to devote all his tinie to painting. For two years he specialised in figure studies but he turned freelance in 1973 and was able to concentrate increasingly on equestrian subjects. His commissions have included work for many stables, owners and even for the Officers Mess of the Household Cavalry. A regular award winner, Grahain Isom was decorated by the American Academy of Equine Artists in every year from 1990-1993. In 1993 alone he received a trio ol a,s ards: Best Racing Picture, Best Sporting Picture and Most Popular Picture.
