1973 Babe Ruth Original Painting by LeRoy Neiman....
Neiman's ebullient impressionistic style has enjoyed decades of popularity among the general male population since his buddy Hugh Hefner gave him his start at Playboy, and he quickly became synonymous with sports art, creating program covers for Heavyweight Championship fights, the Indy 500 and the World Series. But we still find ourselves near the very beginning of his wider acceptance in the rarefied air of galleries from Soho to Beverly Hills, suggesting the real pricing boom is still around the corner.
Those believing that Neiman's path will mirror those of Rockwell and Elvgren willl see tremendous opportunity here, in this arresting study of our National Pastime's most decorated practitioner. All boxes for a quality Neiman are ticked here, from the peerless subject matter to the imposing dimensions (29x25") to the bold and unmistakable color palette. The oil on board is professionally framed to final dimensions of 35x31".
