This circa 1959 oil painting is by artist J.W. Orth who is best known for his plein air style paintings of California land and seascapes. The portrait of a young Gil Hodges in his Dodger's uniform measures 20" x 24". The medium is oil paint on a masonite board and the painting is in its original frame which has an overall measurement of 30" x 34". The color choice lends itself to an earth tone palette and is a terrific rendition of Hodges with an almost photo realistic technique employed that gives us an incredible likeness. The quality of the piece is NRMT.
