1940s Original Bruce Smith Heisman Trophy Winner Oil Painting (ex-Bruce Smith Family)

1940s Original Bruce Smith Heisman Trophy Winner Oil Painting (ex-Bruce Smith Family)

The man who won the seventh Heisman Trophy - Bruce "Boo" Smith - is immortalized in this one-of-a-kind, oil-on-canvas painting that was commissioned by Smith's father and hung in the Evergreen Knoll Supper Club in Minnesota. The club was later sold and became a public restaurant that added on a Heisman room in which this painting hung until it closed down. Smith led the Minnesota Golden Gophers to consecutive mythical National Championship seasons in 1940 and 1941 and he is portrayed here in uniform with pigskin in hand and towel over his left shoulder. The celebrated halfback served as a Navy fighter pilot during World War II and later played in the NFL for the Packers and Rams. Measuring roughly 16x20" and 23x27" in its frame, the exceptional, rare painting is in EX-MT condition.
