Sallie Gardner at a Gallop,
Animation of Eadweard Muybridges Sallie Gardner at a Gallop,
photographed June 19, 1878, at Palo Alto, California.
Muybridge (1830-1904) had been commissioned by Gov. Leland
to demonstrate that, indeed, trotting horses did lift four feet from the ground
at the same time. Photographic series such this were shown on a Zoopraxiscope, a
primitive motion picture developed by Muybridge.
