Description

A masterful portrait of "Le Grand Orange."

1986 Rusty Staub Original Painting by LeRoy Neiman. Many fans assign credit for the Mets' second National League Championship in 1973 to the thunderous bat of their star right-fielder, who blasted three homers and drove in five runs before the spectacular robbery of an extra-base hit off the bat of Reds slugger Dan Driessen separated Staub's shoulder and limited his effectiveness in the subsequent World Series battle with the Oakland A's.

His productive bat (Staub's 105 RBI's in 1975 stood as a Mets record for over a decade) and nifty fielding endured him to the fans at Shea during nine seasons with the club. The style is classic Neiman, thickly applied paint in kaleidoscopic bursts of color, the palette here relying heavily on the Mets blue and orange. The work measures 19x25" in size and is signed and dated "'86" by Neiman at lower left. On reverse, Neiman's distinctive script titles the work, "Grand Orange Grand Slam."

Though Neiman has long served as the most recognizable American artist of the post-war era, his recent passing has added rocket fuel to the fire of his market, with four of his works soaring into six-figure territory in recent Heritage auctions. We expect the climb in pricing to continue, and for smart investors to be paying close attention when this classic work hits the block.
