In our leatest exhibition Bad Hair Day there is a caricature of the singer Chaliapin in the role of Don Quixote. Chaliapin visited New Zealand in 1926 but it seems likely that this drawing originates with the film Don Quixote, directed by Georg Pabst, in which Chaliapin starred.
This film opened in Christchurch in September 1934

Bad Hair Day investigates the wild and wonderful ways of hair through painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and video.
