DESCRIPTION
Collection of fourteen original Dick Perez baseball artworks produced specifically for inclusion in the book The Immortals: An Art Collection of Baseball's Best (see introduction for more information). Featured is an extraordinary gallery of stars and important figures representing the 1941-1957 era in baseball history. Perez has signed all of the paintings on the front in varying locations. Each painting depicts one or more Baseball Hall of Fame members and, in keeping with the narrative spirit of the book, most players are pictured "in action." (Both Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby are each featured twice here, once individually and then again with another Hall of Famer.) All of the paintings offered here are featured in the chapter "War and Post War Years" and are exclusive to the book; they have been published nowhere else. The collection is comprised of the following (all measurements are in inches): 1) Bob Lemon; 11 x 16; watercolor on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 2) Jackie Robinson; 15 x 20; gouache on board. 3) Whitey Ford; 16 x 20; oil on canvas. 4) Nellie Fox; 13.5 x 13.5; watercolor on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 5) Larry Doby; 20 x 20; oil on canvas. 6) Bill Veeck/Larry Doby; 16 x 12; watercolor on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 7) Billy Southworth; 12 x 24; watercolor on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 8) Jackie Robinson/Pee Wee Reese; 18 x 24; oil on panel. 9) Joe Gordon; 16 x16; oil on canvas. 10) Bobby Doerr; 20 x 16; gouache on board. 11) Nestor Chylak/Phil Rizzuto; 11 x 22; oil on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 12) Stan Musial; 28 x 22; oil on canvas. 13) Ted Williams/Tom Yawkey/Jean Yawkey; 18 x 14; gouache on 100% cotton fiber arches WC paper. 14) George Kell; 11 x 22; gouache on board.
