This original charcoal drawing by Ann Hollaway is mounted and framed to conservation standards with an off-white double mount and a 5.3cm wide satin black  frame with contrasting highlights. The framed original is glazed with a high quality reduced reflection glass called ARTglass. Supplied with a certificate of authenticity and is strung ready to hang.


Standard picture framing glass is called float glass.  To reduce reflection we glaze the original artwork with ARTglass. 

Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film on both sides, reducing reflection whilst remaining crystal clear.  It is considered the Rolls Royce of reflection reducing picture framing glass.



Ann Hollaway steers away from traditional equine portraiture, instead producing very striking physical renditions of the equine form.

She works mostly in charcoal using broad gestural strokes to suggest form and movement, often using an eraser to highlight areas of muscle and limb.

Ann uses the charcoal to create intense dark backgrounds on one side often leaving the paper blank on the other. Not only does this limited palette and lack of background detail heighten the drama of the work, but also focuses our attention on the animal and the shapes it makes.

With the focus on movement and drama it is no surprise that Ann previously worked as a theatre designer in London and Hampshire and is also an accomplished horsewoman competing in shows and dressage events.

Since the 1990’s she has exhibited up and down the country in solo and mixed shows including the prestigious Society of Equine Artists Exhibition in Newmarket and the Society of Wildlife Artists Exhibition in London.
