Henry Koehler is widely acknowledged to be one of the finest living sporting artists in the world. His long association with the sporting life began soon after his graduation from Yale, when his illustrations appeared in The New Yorker, Town & Country and Sports Illustrated.

His first exhibition was in 1961 and since that time he has shown 58 times in London, Paris, Dublin, Johannesburg and throughout the United States. Racing and hunting come alive under his brush. He also offers us intimate, behind-the-scenes looks at jockeys, horses, dogs and the special accoutrements of each sport.

He has painted several portraits of well-known polo ponies on commission but prefers to capture ‘the flavor, sound and smell of polo. He is unique amongst contemporary artists in being able to capture with such intimacy the world of the horse, not only on the hunting field and racecourse, but also in the boot room, jockeys racing, and in his sensitive studies of polo games & pony lines.

His loyal following of collectors has included , Ralph Lauren, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Paul Mellon, John Hay Whitney, President John Kennedy, the Duke of Beaufort, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, the Duchess of Cornwall, Senator Edward Kennedy, Mrs. George Baker, the Duchess of Windsor, the Bancroft Family , The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales.

His works can be seen at the National Racing Museum in Saratoga and at the National Horse Racing Museum at Newmarket in Great Britain.

Hampton Classic Horse Show Announces 2009 Poster By Henry Koehler
Koehler, whose work gives the casual viewer a behind the scenes glimpse into the world of riding and provides moments of nostalgia to those familiar to the sport, also created the Hampton Classic poster in 1979, 1985, and 1993. Far away from the glitz, glamour and action of the Grand Prix ring, Koehler’s portrait for this year’s horse show offers a voyeuristic insight into a private moment between a young rider and her horse. This truly captures the finest side of the equestrian world, the intimate relationship that exists between horse and rider.
