Success as an animal painter quickly followed; although initially excluded from the Royal Academy, he would exhibit with the Royal Society of Artists, and subsequently with the Royal Academy, for nearly fifteen years. The upper classes were Stubbs's main source of patronage, the racing noblemen anxious to have the most fashionable sporting painter of the day immortalize not only their nobility within nature but also their racehorses, jockeys, hounds and grooms. At times his compositions are forced, demonstrative more of his analytical ability than of his artistic talent, where strings of horses and dogs are carefully placed in a strictly observed landscape but with little sense of purpose to pull them together into a whole.
In line with the Grand Style, he expanded on the theme of the lion preying on the wild horse, a favorite subject matter in antique sculpture, which he may well have encountered on his visit to Italy. A Lion Devouring a Horse is one of seventeen works by Stubbs on this subject. He painted every wild animal he came across zebra, moose, rhinoceros - with the exactitude of the natural scientist and experimented with techniques, using different types of paint - such as enamel - and surfaces such as copper and earthenware panels made for him specially by Josiah Wedgwood, the industrial innovator who actively sought collaboration with scientifically minded artists such as Stubbs and Wright.
