Classic Collectibles is very excited to offer the breathtaking artwork of Doug West, artist for the Hockey Hall of Fame throughout the 1990's. This is a rare opportunity to own a one of a kind original painting done by "America's Premier Sports Artist." Mr. West was first commissioned in 1990 by the Detroit Red Wings to paint seven players, a project which led to his association with the Hockey Hall of Fame and the artist's major undertaking to produce works of art to be used as postcard-sized, limited edition art cards which were available in 18-card sets throughout the first half of the 1990's. Each masterful creation was painted on double-weight illustration board, using the unique medium of opaque watercolor, with West commanding his unique watercolor approach to give each artwork a striking, life-like appearance. Priding himself in his Hall-of-Famer portraiture, West excites each hockey fan to relive their greatest hockey memories in these captivating masterpieces. There is only one original painting available of each. Gorgeous painting here depicts longtime Ranger defenceman Harry Howell who joined the Blueshirts in 1952, proceeded to play 21 NHL seasons before another three in the WHA. At 22, Howell became the youngest captain in NHL history in 1955. The ‘66-67 season was a career year, Harry was named to the 1st All-Star Team, won the Norris Trophy and was showered with gifts and cheers on Harry Howell Night at Madison Square Garden.
