    Description

    1960's John F. Kennedy Original Painting by Curt Flood. This magnificent portrait of President Kennedy became an even greater conversation piece after the airing of the fascinating HBO documentary "The Curious Case of Curt Flood," an in depth study of the extraordinarily talented but troubled outfielder. Though Flood was truly a highly skilled painter, the producers of the documentary were able to uncover proof that many of Flood's commissioned works were not his own creations. We can't be certain whether this portrait is counted among those falsely attributed works, but this only adds to the appeal in our estimation. It's definitely Flood's block lettered "signature" at lower right, as he did, in fact, sign all works. The oil on canvas measures approximately 20x25" and is framed to final dimensions of 29x33".
