Horse and Train1954 by Alex Colville

"The painting...shows a dark horse galloping down railroad tracks, away from the viewer and into the path of an oncoming train. Colville has said the painting was inspired by a couplet written by the South African poet Roy Campbell: "Against a regiment I oppose a brain/And a dark horse against an armoured train."

"...can be seen... in Kubrick's The Shining."
