    The Dallas Cowboys win their first NFL Championship!

    1972 Super Bowl VI Original Painting by LeRoy Neiman. Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana bursts to kaleidoscopic life in this commanding oil on board work from the greatest sports artist of all time. The week that LeRoy Neiman headed down to the Big Easy to watch the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins battle it out for NFL supremacy in Super Bowl VI, his painting of the the teams' future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Bob Griese decorated every newsstand in the nation, the cover art for the January 17, 1972 edition of Time Magazine. But this panoramic field-level view is a far more complex and compelling work than that Time Magazine commission, certainly one of the most thrilling Neiman offerings that Heritage has had the privilege to present to the collecting community.

    With a massive image size of 23x31.5", this dazzling creation mirrors the enormity of the occasion, a battle of gridiron titans that saw the Dallas Cowboys enjoy their first taste of Super Bowl glory, and the Miami Dolphins losing their last game before the start of the first and still only perfect season in NFL history. Staubach is about to uncork a pass downfield as two Dolphins rise up to block its trajectory. We believe that the target is Lance Alworth, streaking across the field at far right. Beyond the end zone, a phalanx of flag-bearers appears ready to take the field, presumably for half time festivities.

    The work has all of the classic Neiman hallmarks--a daring color palette, thick paint application, a masterful command of perspective and depth of field, and a bold autograph (at lower right). Museum-quality matting and framing completes the dimensions at 35x43". No physical faults are apparent upon close inspection.
