One of the most famous Neiman images1998 Joe DiMaggio Original Artwork by LeRoy Neiman--Study for "Yankee Clipper." 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 thousands of the lithographs 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 will 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".
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. Like Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" and Van Gogh's "Starry Night," this image is considered a defining work for its creator. As the Neiman market continues to soar, we expect investment-minded bidders to be keeping close watch on this important offering. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
