Upon retiring at the age of 73, Elphège Valois took up the hobby of carving. The miniatures he carved in his workshop reflect the love he had for horses and horse-drawn vehicles. With meticulous attention to detail and proportions, the artist faithfully reproduced carriages that were in use when he was a boy. His horses, painted in gouache, trot with spirit and elegance.
