LeRoy Neiman was best known for his brilliantly colored, expressionist paintings and screen prints of athletes, musicians, and sporting events. This brightly colored artwork is the only Washington Senators object the artist ever created and was also featured in the 1971 classic "This Great Game" by Doris Townsend. The subject of this original Neiman artwork is Frank Oliver Howard, the former All-Star outfielder and manager. The Capital Punisher played most of his career for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Senators/Texas Rangers franchises. One of the most physically intimidating players in the sport, the 6-7 235-pound Howard was named the National League Rookie of the Year in 1960. 32x44".
