Collingwood Team of the Century

Jamie Cooper Artist Proof Signed

 The painting was based on a famous photo of the mighty team of the late 1920’s celebrating after yet another Grand Final win. Not suprisingly quite a few of the players could remain in the painting from the original photo, such was the quality of that era in Magpie history. Syd Coventry rides the shoulders of the pack as the ultimate leader.
Peter Daicos has launched himself in joy onto Gordon Coventry’s back as the cream of the Club’s history gather for this informal portrait. The Collier brothers kneel side by side and most recent Premiership captain Tony Shaw, nurses the cup and his prized Norm Smith Medal. In the stands at Victoria Park the past presidents and dignitaries watch on proudly and in the background (left) we see a little payback.
In the Blues Team of the century painting a magpie is cruelly squashed under the boot of Bruce Doull. Here we see a blues jumper being torn to shreds by a pack of Magpies. Justice is done.
