Lot 1467: Roberto Clemente Original Painting by Bill Purdom (11x14")
His work has already been enshrined for all of eternity in the Baseball Hall of Fame permanent collection, with 74 of his limited edition lithographs currently displayed in Cooperstown. And here is an original painting by the master of his craft, worthy of any wall of worship. Roberto Clemente rendered in delightful likeness with deep stare, sporting the Pittsburgh cap that would crown him a legend. Bust profile is the way this hero should be remembered. The artwork is signed in lower left by Purdom in blue ink. Framed to 16x19”. Excellent.
