Catalogue Note

Painted at the age of 21, the present work is an early example of Jack depicting a favourite subject and shows him increasingly sure of his technical abilities. It seems to anticipate the advanced watercolours of the late 1890s which, as Pyle observes, bear similarities with Degas' horse paintings twenty years earlier with the attraction to empty space and oblique angles, for example Waiting, 1897 (private collection).
