Description

Published on Page 194 in the chapter "Golden Age, 1920-1929." Many artists and connoisseurs view watercolor as the hardest medium of them all due to the way water can move and (unlike oil or acrylic) the near inability to revise. One truly has to get it right the first time—as expert watercolorist Dick Perez has achieved here with good ol' Lindy. A stark yet intimate dugout scene, the portrait contrasts the vibrancy of Lindstrom's uniform colors and ruddy complexion with the subtle earth tones of the wall, bench, bat and glove. Lindstrom gazes intently at the viewer with clear blue eyes, his left leg folded across his right knee. The jersey design can be traced to either 1924 (when the "Boy Wonder" became the youngest-ever World Series participant), 1926 or 1927. The 1928 season proved to be his offensive breakout with a .358 batting average, 231 hits and 107 RBIs.
