Ready for the Track

10 x 8 Oil on Archival Board

Continuing with my people at museums series...I really loved this woman studying "For the Track" by John Frederick Peto at the National Gallery of Art.  Although painted between 1854 and 1907, this painting has a really modern collage appearance, combining lots of track images; such as a crop, a horseshoe, ripped betting tickets, etc.  The woman dressed in what looked like riding boots just seemed ready take to the track.  Those boots and the tilt of her head won me over :-)
