“All-American Baseball Hero” Sports Portrait Painting, Joe Di Maggio, the “Yankee Clipper,” New York’s number five, the man with “the swing”, is a baseball legend never to be forgotten.
This portrait painting I created of the late, great Joe Di Maggio emphasizes his classic swing. This nostalgic sports portrait painting is primarily black, grey, and white. There are subtle more modern coloration’s that give warm details, such as the ecru skin tones and the wooden bat, along with the navy tones of the cap, emblem and socks. Looking at the crowd behind Joe Di Maggio they appear at first as excited fans, looking closely they are shapes intertwined together to appear to look as a crowd. This “All-American Baseball Hero” Sports Portrait Painting, Joe Di Maggio has an element of modern art along with the sense of nostalgia.
This 34″X34″ sports painting is based on historic photographs from the game on June 29, 1941 at Griffith Stadium in Washington, when Joe DiMaggio tied George Sisler’s record of 41 consecutive games.
“All American Baseball Hero” Sports Portrait Painting, Joe Di Maggio is a part of the Artist’s Collection.
