Officer of the Hussars Deck of Cards
This deck of cards features Kehinde Wiley’s 2007 painting Officer of the Hussars. Sitting high on a horse with a leopard skin saddle and welding a sabre, the model mirrors the subject of Théodore Géricault’s 1812 painting of the same title. The model, in contemporary clothing with Timberlands and a watch, turns to face the viewer as his horse rears up in a deserted battlefield. At first glance, like many Kehinde Wiley paintings, makes viewers observe who has power.
