About this Item

South African 1953-
The Currie Cup 1990
signed and dated 1991
oil and found object on canvas in artist painted frame
56 by 46 by 5cm including frame


The present lot was produced as part of a series inspired by a commission the artist received by Craig Jamieson, then captain of The Sharks, the Kwa-Zulu Natal rugby team. The artwork was created to commemorate the team's victory in the Currie Cup Final in 1990. Findlay continued painting smaller works such as the present lot that eventually led to a larger artwork titled Trophies now housed at the Wits Art Museum.
