Provenance: the artist’s family, by direct descent


Gerald Moira, though of Portuguese parentage, here depicts a Spanish Caballero (horseman) in typical dress. Moira wrote extensively about colour value and especially the use of red with colours of equal weight (Harold Watkins, The Art of Gerald Moira, Dickens, London, 1922, p. 49). His dramatic use of red and blue here corresponds with the bold use of colour in his murals.



We are grateful to Michael Barker for his assistance.
