The painting "The Silver Horse" by Antti Rautiola portrays a young girl in an indoor setting, engrossed in play with a toy horse. The horse, rendered in reflective silver tones, is the focal point of her attention, suggesting a moment of imaginative play. The girl is seated on the floor, her posture relaxed and absorbed, with striped leggings and a yellow top, her hair held back by a pink hairband, indicating a casual, comfortable moment in a child's day.

Rautiola's painting style is characterized by its expressive brushstrokes and impressionistic approach, giving the artwork a dynamic and textured feel. The strokes are visible and energetic, contributing to a sense of movement and vitality within the stillness of the scene. The use of light and shadow is evident, with the light source seemingly coming from the left, highlighting the girl's side profile and casting shadows that add depth to the composition. The background is suggestive rather than detailed, allowing the viewer's focus to remain on the girl and her toy, while also providing a sense of the space in which she is situated. This style helps to create a personal and intimate glimpse into the child's world, one that is filled with simplicity and the richness of imagination.
