Franklin Brooke Voss

American 1880-1953 

Franklin Brooke Voss, an American sporting artist, was born in 1880 in New York City, New York. He studied at the Art Students League of New York under Canadian-American artist George Bridgman. Voss gained recognition for his equestrian works, which featured some of the most renowned thoroughbred racehorses in the sport. Among his notable works are depictions of Equipoise, Seabiscuit, War Admiral, Sir Barton, Whirlaway, and Man o’ War. The latter is widely regarded as the greatest racehorse of all time, having won 20 out of 21 races. Voss completed commissions for prominent patrons such as the Whitney and Vanderbilt families. In addition to being in many private collections, his works can be found in public collections like the National Sporting Library and Museum in Middleburg, Virginia and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.
