Brief Description
Original Robert Ingpen watercolour depicting Australian Rules footballer, Roy Cazaly (1893-1963), in the red and white South Melbourne colours, with an unidentified player (back to the image). The artist's image number - 44 - and subject's name and club are handwritten below the design, with the pencilled years '1921-27'. A sheet of tracing paper, with grid lines and references, folds over the artwork which is signed and dated by the artist. The image is included in a tapestry celebrating 150 years of performances and events on the MCG. Cazaly played 99 games for the St Kilda Football Club (1911-1920), and 99 games for South Melbourne (1921-24, 1926-27). Cazaly, a high-leaping ruckman, has been immortalized by the cry, "Up there, Cazaly".
