The Art of Tottenham - 3
The Art of Tottenham returns with another collection of Spurs related images. This time around I thought we would go for a series of likenesses and you can decide how well they did. Again thanks to the several artists who agreed to let us use their work.
If you have any information on any of these pieces please contact me. They have been drawn from various archives and private collections, unfortunately carrying very little detail.
First up a nice study of Paul Gascoigne, assume this was done around the 1990 World Cup.
Below (right) is a portrait of Bill Nicholson. Who has been a regular target for the artist over the years with varying results as we will discover in a moment.
Then we have, Mauricio Pochettino, also a nice one of him in the top image. He is followed by two of Pat Jennings for you to consider. Then below we have a whole back four of Bill Nicholson's from his playing days.
Left - Christian Eriksen.
Below the thought to give defenders a few sleepless nights.
Three Jimmy Greaves's.
In the center - The info I was given was by Farmer (?) and the one on the right is signed Trevillion. Paul has been one of our top sports artists for many years.
Left - Gary Lineker - 1986 World Cup when he scored a hat trick to keep England in the competition. Nice touch to include the cast he wore that day on his injured arm.
Below Left - Taken from a photograph - The 1948 Cup Semi Final and Stanley Mathews with our own Ron Burgess.
Right - Tony Marchi being followed up the steps by Ted Ditchburn.
Above two clearly by the same artist, if anyone can make our the signature please contact me. Jurgen Klinsmann and Maurice Norman are the subjects.
Right - Our former manager Harry Redknapp and a witty view of his daily press comments during the transfer window.
From someone who has trouble drawing the curtains a nod to all those talented people out there.
