Bernhard Bloch Smoking Jockey*
Amusing and characterful study of a jockey standing with his hands in his pockets, leaning back against an old tree stump with a cigar clamped between his teeth.
Wearing long boots and with his cap at a slightly jaunty angle, this is a wonderfully stylised figure – long and skinny with an angular face, big ears and a knowing look.
It could only be by Bernhard Bloch and it is, marked with the usual BB on the underside and numbered 7501. There is also a somewhat indistinct signature to one edge of the base.
In very nice condition – his cigar may have been re-attached at some point but it’s not obvious.
Dating from circa 1910 or perhaps just a little later and approximately 27 cm high.
