045 Drayman's Horse

Tateh was an artist and the president of the Socialist Artists. He struggled early on in life as an immigrant, but managed to overcome numerous hardships because of his passion and dedication. Tateh’s motivation came from his family, he had to maintain his daughter, the Little Girl, and himself. He could have also been inspired by his wife; he mourned for his wife as she offered herself and that gave Tateh no choice but to banish her from their home. He worked hard by creating silhouettes for a living and sold many to Evelyn Nesbit, who stood by his daughter. As long as Evelyn’s aid continued, Tateh “began to create more and more intricate silhouettes … of Evelyn, little girl, and drayman’s horse..”






The derivation of “dray” is a low heavy horse cart with no sides; usually used for labor. Before automobiles were invented, Draymen were drivers that pulled wagons by horses or mules. They drove high class people around to places. A dray horse was a powerful horse used to pull heavy loads. Drayman was a person who delivered beer to a brewery. A dray cart could’ve looked like a wagon or even a carriage; they weren’t luxurious and they were pulled by one to four horses, depending on the weight and length of the dray. One of the oldest brewery is the Wadworth’s Brewery, located in the south of England. They still use dray horses to carry their beer around their town. The link shown below, shows how dray horses are used.
