Joe DiMaggio Signed Original Painting By Mike Schacht
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $29,375.00
Original oil-on-canvas painting of Joe DiMaggio by Hall of Fame Mike Schacht, one of the baseball world's most highly acclaimed and instantly recognized artists. Signed and personally inscribed to Barry Halper by Joe DiMaggio, the painting held a special place of honor on the wall behind Barry Halper's desk. This is an extraordinary example of Schacht's pop-art style, obviously inspired by Andy Warhol's famous four-quadrant painting of Marilyn Monroe, and features repeating images of DiMaggio set against four different backgrounds. DiMaggio has signed the piece in blue marker ("9") in the upper right, "To my friend Barry - With my warm wishes - Joe DiMaggio." Signed "M. Schacht" in the lower right. The painting measures 24 x 30 inches and has been framed to slightly larger dimensions. Schacht passed away in 2001. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $29,375.00
