South African War art

A tight corner, a New Zealander, painted by Georges Montbard, about 1900. South African War art often featured soldiers in heroic poses, such as this member of the Rough Riders (Third and Fourth Contingents) who takes aim while at full gallop. Such images owed more to artistic licence than to the actual events they depicted; for instance, the sword the soldier wears was not part of the Rough Riders' kit.
