    1982 Steve Bartkowski Original Painting by Stephen Holland. Though his distinctive style, which falls somewhere in the zone between impressionism and expressionism, might occasionally reveal some influence by the legendary Neiman, we name Holland as the heir to Neiman's throne due to his undeniable skill and the ever-strengthening market for his works. Holland is likewise present in major collections both public and private and widely sought after for commissioned work, further strengthening the comparison. But like any great artist, Holland has found his own aesthetic voice, and we see the evidence in this impressive gouache and charcoal on paper.

    The subject is veteran Atlanta Falcons quarterback Steve Bartkowski, who led his team to the NFC West Championship during the strike-shortened season of 1982 when this work was created. Holland's signature and date appear in pale grey at upper left of the image, which is simply but attractively framed behind glass to dimensions of 36x40". Fine condition with no flaws worthy of note.
