Dale Earnhardt Autographed Winston Cup Champion Nascar Oil Painting
DALE EARNHARDT AUTOGRAPHED ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING. AUTOGRAPHED NASCAR WINSTON CUP"THE CHAMPIONS". Presented are one of nine oil on canvas artworks originally commissioned for use in the publication of a limited edition boxed set of NASCAR prints celebrating Winston Motor Sports' 20th Anniversary in 1991. Those prints, titled "The Champions" - The Official 20th Anniversary Artist Edition. Were originally distributed by Sports Marketing Enterprises, Inc. And limited to 750 in number for each artwork. Two different artists, Randall McKissick and Carl Derrick, were commissioned to create the attractive images, all of which feature large portrait images of each former Winston Cup winner amid a montage of racing scenes. McKissick has created the images of Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Allison, Richard Petty, Cale Yarborough and Benny Parsons, while Derrick has captured racing legends Rusty Wallace, Bill Elliot, Terry Labonte and Darrell Waltrip. Each of the original artworks measures approximately 21" x 25" and has been handsomely, matted and framed, in an identical style, to a total dimension of 31" x 35".
All of the drivers have signed the white matte along the base in a variety of inks, with the signatures each grading "10". It must be noted that the Earnhardt image featured in the original artwork was not used for publication because the sponsors wished him to be pictured wearing a Winston Cup hat. Thus, it remains an original and unpublished artwork of racing's most legendary figure. Also included in the collection is an original artwork (identical in dimension) of 1992 Winston Cup Champion Alan Kulwicki by artist Linda Noah, which was an original commission by the consignor and not part of the published series.
Unfortunately, Kulwicki passed away before the painting could have it signed. All of the artworks are in pristine condition and have been signed by the respective artists.
The frames exhibit light wear including some minor chips and abrasions. The item "DALE EARNHARDT AUTOGRAPHED WINSTON CUP CHAMPION NASCAR OIL PAINTING" is in sale since Tuesday, March 16, 2004.
