THOMAS PEDDER Queens Hussars MAORI WARS New Zealand Wanganui 1847 Painting. A superb period watercolour of Captain Thomas Peddar from the 7th Queens Own Hussars who fought in the Maori Wars at Wanganui on 19th May 1847 and at subsequent action the following July.
A most interesting piece, although appearing unsigned of excellent quality. A sketch of Captain Pedder exists in The New Zealand National Library collection that is by John Alexander Gilfillan. The sketch shows Pedder in casual attire. We suspect this watercolour could also be by Gilfillan, though showing Pedder in his regimental splendour.
Maori War portraits are scarce. Medium- Watercolours heightened with gum Arabic.
Size- 17.25 by 13.75 inches approx (435 x 350 mm) overall, image 14 by 11.5 inches approx. Condition- The painting is in good condition for its age. There is some light foxing and paper browning commensurate with age. Please rest assured, here at Belvoirfineart the welfare of our customers and our staff are of the utmost priority.
