Wonderful impressionistic print of the original Yankee Stadium. Opened in 1923, the original Yankee Stadium was built as a way to give the Yankees their own venue since they had the marvelous Babe Ruth belting homers and drawing fans, but were were still tenants at the Polo Grounds, the home of the New York Giants. Thomas Kindade, the artist who created this giclee print, speaks for his creation when he states, "This is the original Yankee Stadium, the House That Ruth Built." Because this is a distant view, you can populate the field with Yankee heroes of your choosing. Could that be Lou Gehrig at first base? Babe Ruth in right field? Joe DiMaggio patrolling center?" Framed at 36x44.5", this is real art, created by ink jets, not manufactured. Imagine Rizzuto or Jeter at shortstop. Is that Dickey, or Berra or Munson catching? This beautiful art and your imagination knows no bounds. Kinkade paints it all: the famous facade in the outfield, the monuments in center, the triple deck stands, the Bronx skyline, and the short porch in right. Excellent condition.
