Ward's style has changed in 1803, when the workshop of Benjamin West, he first saw the Rubens painting "Castle Walls" (London, NAT. Gal.), which inspired him to create the paintings "the Battle of bulls on the background of the castle of St. Donat" (1804, London, the London Alberta). Indeed, this painting amazes the viewer the purity and strength of strachatella, which are also his works of animalistic genre, inspired by the work of Stubbs and Potter ( "Love horses", 1828, London, Gal.
