This horse is one of the most beautiful in the equestrian show, if not the most beautiful. He is called "Tsar", a name that suits him perfectly in view of his nobility. This Trakehner, an old German saddle horse with a lot of "blood" is very robust and has an unrivalled chic. He is ridden by "Set", an Egyptian deity who represents a complex god in myth.
Alfons Alt accompanied the troupe of Bartabas, the founder of the equestrian theatre Zingaro, during their show "La cabaret de l'exil". The meeting of these two worlds plunges us into a dreamlike world populated by animals, nature and mythology. Alfons Alt walks on the borders of painting, photography and engraving by a process invented in the middle of the 19th century that he has updated and named "Altotype". By combining these processes, he takes us into a singular pigmented universe and gives us the opportunity to see unique creations. He says it himself: "It is exactly there that I situate myself between the reality of photography and the dream world of painting with the sensuality of the material.
Retour De Voyage particularly likes this mixture of green pigments from which the prestigious horse stands out, dignified and proud.
