Original giclee on canvas, titled The Stare
, hand-numbered "100/170," flawlessly signed in gold paint pen by Koufax (grading "10"), who has inscribed it "To Kess/Best Wishes/Sandy Koufax." Also signed in gold paint pen by the artist Stephen Holland. The Stare
, which was released in the early 1990s, not only represents one of Holland's earliest pieces but also his first of several paintings of Sandy Koufax. The numbered prints of The Stare
were limited to just 170 and were quickly sold out. Its rarity notwithstanding, this giclee is also the most recognizable artwork of Koufax ever created and considered by many to be one of Holland's greatest works. Stephen Holland is an internationally acclaimed sports artist. In 1993 he was named the Sports Artist of the Year by the American Sport Art Museum, and he was also one of twelve artists selected by the United States Olympic Committee to represent the 100th Anniversary of the Olympics. The giclee (28 x 35 inches; visible image area) is in apparent Near Mint to Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 40 x 48 inches. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA.
