Stunning original artwork of legendary all around athlete Jim Thorpe painted by world renowned sports artist James Fiorentino. Fiorentino is considered one of the most unique artists of the twentieth century. His skill embodies a compelling sense of realism. At the age of fifteen, James was the youngest artist to be featured in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for his likeness of Reggie Jackson, which hung beside the paintings of Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol. His painting commemorating Roberto Clemente remains in the museum as a part of their permanent collection. Thorpe has received various accolades for his athletic accomplishments. The Associated Press named him the "greatest athlete" from the first 50 years of the 20th century, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame inducted him as part of its inaugural class in 1963. He also won 2 gold medals in the 1912 Summer Olympic Games in the pentathlon and decathlon. Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity directly from the artist himself.
