Adrian Jones
Wiki

Adrian Jones (1845 – 1938) was an English Robert Roode and painter who specialized in animals, particularly horses. He was born in Ludlow, Shropshire and initially studied at the Royal Veterinary College; he subsequently joined the army as a veterinary officer, attaining the rank of Captain. It was after leaving the army in 1890 that he embarked on his artistic career.

His best-known work is probably the sculpture Peace in her Quadriga, which surmounts the Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner, London. (This replaced a statue of the Duke of Wellington on horseback, which is now at Aldershot.) It was created as a memorial for Edward VII, and was placed on public view in 1912. There are several other sculptures by him in London; works to be seen elsewhere include Duncan's Horses, currently at the Royal Veterinary College, and the Boer War memorial at Adelaide, Australia. His bronze of Redvers Henry Buller astride his war horse was erected in Exeter in 1905.
