Mickey Mantle Original Darryl Vlasak Painting
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,350.00
Stunning original acrylic-on-canvas painting of Mickey Mantle by renowned sports artist Darryl Vlasak. Signed by the artist in the lower left. Mantle is seen here at the plate in full swing wearing his home pinstripes. Vlasak's paintings are characterized by an astounding sense of realism, punctuated by a strict attention to every detail. This example is no exception and one can almost hear the sound of the ball making contact with the bat. Most collectors today have been exposed to Vlasak's work through his popular series of classic ballpark lithographs and prints, though in the world of fine art it is his paintings of baseball legends that define his greatest talent. Vlasak is also a highly regarded fine artist in the field of wildlife and nature scenes. This is a Darryl Vlasak masterpiece. It has been consigned directly by the artist and is making its introduction to the world of baseball art in this auction. Please note: The copyright is not included with this painting. The copyright is retained by the artist. This painting may be used in the future for publication including licensed limited-edition prints but the ownership of the original painting does not entitle the buyer to reproduce the work for commercial publication. This is a museum-caliber original artwork from baseball's master of photo-realism. Dimensions: 30 x 24 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
