E.J. Gold's paintings of friends and people that he has known over the years provide us with a valuable body of work that represent us with the influences of his life and work. How does the image of a bold and brash young rookie making his way in the world?
Many of these questions on various paintings in my collection I have wondered about and then chastised myself for trying to steal the mystery of one of the greatest creative minds of our times.
Did Gold feel like a rookie with some new venture in mind? Not sure if he would make it or not?
Or was it a meeting of two great men and the resulting image from his mind's eye?
Any sports buff would love to have this as a crowning feature of any sports collection, but art is first to be enjoyed and discussed. It is to be absorbed by the soul and mind before ever being thought of as soley and investment. I know you will find a pleasant place for this in your den or office as I have.
Proudly displayed in a museum quality polished wood and canvas double frame this painting stands out as a brilliant and singular attention grabbing piece of any collection.
