A framed oil on canvas horse racing painting from the mid 20th century, depicting jockeys on their horses. Born during the midcentury period, this lovely oil on canvas painting features a palette made of blue, white, brown and red tones among others. Topped with a blue sky rendered through thick, energetic strokes, the composition is centered around a group of jockeys riding their horses. The unfinished faces and vibrancy of the touch allow us to focus on the movement, perfectly rendered by the horse’s position in the foreground, as well as the vitality of the scene. Set inside a thin black frame, this oil on canvas painting is signed L Shearer lower left.
