Sport was a subject that fascinated Sybil Andrews and the Grosvenor School, as it provided them with the opportunity to convey speed, fluidity and the expression of physical exertion. The movement and sheer exhilaration of sport was an ideal subject for Andrews to convey her modernist aesthetic. Sport was the subject of a number of Andrews’s most famous linocuts, including: Steeplechasing, 1930, In Full Cry (1931), Racing (1934), Speedway (1934), Football (1937), Skaters (1953) and this superb work.
This print is a very fine impression on oriental laid tissue with strong colours, and was produced in an edition of 60.
