Description:
1998 Joe DiMaggio, Study for "Yankee Clipper" Original Artwork by LeRoy Neiman. The pose will be instantly recognizable to any student of the legendary sports artist's work, as well as most fans of the late, great Joe DiMaggio, who signed boatloads of the lithograph printed from Neiman's "Yankee Clipper" original. This brightly colored pastel on artist's paper represents one of the final steps in the evolution of Neiman's famous work, and a comparison to the later oil on canvas with reveal the identical positioning of Joltin' Joe and his famous swing, the yellow bursts of spectators and the deep navy of the stadium structure.

Neiman autographs and dates the image "LeRoy Neiman '98" at lower center, and identifies the work "Joe DiMaggio, Study for 'Yankee Clipper'" at lower right. The image area measures fifteen inches square, tastefully matted and framed to final dimensions of 28x28".

This is one of two Neiman originals presented within the Heritage "Platinum Night" auction. Though this most famous artist ever to work in the sporting realm is notoriously prolific, his iconic images are intensely coveted are fiercely pursued when made available. We expect investment-minded bidders to be keeping close watch on this offering. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
