The jockey (oil painting (visual work); Christopher Wood (English painter, 1901-1930); ca. 1926-1927; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1972-0003-1)
Note: This is one of two known paintings of jockeys by Wood. Undated, it has previously been assigned the date of 1923. Its stylistic sophistication and assured handling of the medium, however, suggest a later date of c.1926–27. The thickly textured paint surface, treatment of facial features and emphasis on contour are similar to his works of 1926 such as Nude (private collection) and Jean Bourgoint with Siamese cat (Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge). (Victoria Robson, 2009)
