Jeaneen Barnhart is dedicated to the art of drawing, creating works with her expressive classic style and delicate attention to detail. Garnering great acclaim, her equine and figurative drawings have been exhibited across the nation, featured in numerous media sources, and even graced the sets of HBO’s ‘Entourage’ and ABC’s ‘Body of Proof’.
Jeaneen began painting at an early age along with her twin sister, Doreen. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University in 1992, Jeaneen joined her sister in Louisville, Kentucky where they have partnered on many projects together, including four official Kentucky Derby Festival posters, and the 2010 commemorative Kentucky Derby bottle for Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Other collaborations include charitable projects assisting the American Red Cross, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Her newest endeavor: Creating an ongoing collection of powerful drawings depicting 1973 Triple Crown champion Secretariat, the most recognizable name in thoroughbred racing.
The inaugural release in Jeaneen's series of Secretariat-related works features a powerful study of Big Red with jockey Ron Turcotte aboard inspired by the exact moment Secretariat crossed the finish line in the Belmont Stakes to win the 1973 Triple Crown. The elegant free-form image captures the Meadow Stable champion with jockey Ron Turcotte aboard as he famously turns toward the track's official timer as they establish a new world record of 2:24 for the mile and a half distance in a performance for the ages.
This eye-catching print measuring 22" x 30" and limited to 573 total pieces was produced using the finest archival stock and is signed by the artist. For the discerning collector, the print is also available with the exclusive Secretariat.com option of being hand-signed by Mr. Turcotte. Enjoy this fabulous new release while quantities last!
