Babe Ruth Original Painting

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $7,050.00

Presented here is one of the most stunning and impressive original paintings hanging in the Barry Halper Collection. The original oil-on-canvas painting captures Babe Ruth in a montage of several classic poses including that of his final appearance at Yankee Stadium. It is signed simply "Perry" in the left hand corner. While nothing is known about the artist, or when or for what purpose this painting was created, its extraordinary visual appeal certainly compensates for any lack of provenance. This piece hung in Barry's living room for many years and was always greatly admired by him. The painting measures 30 x 40 inches and has been framed to slightly larger dimensions. From the Barry Halper Collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $7,050.00
