A powerfully executed figure study in oils with a fantastic amount of period flavor. The gloves, the old-fashioned leather jockstrap, the slicked down hair, the leather boxing boots, all definitely date this painting to the 1920s. We aren’t sure if the hand-lettered M.C. Kinney on the reverse of the canvas is the artist’s name or the name of the boxer: the mystery in no way detracts from the charm of the work.
Canvas, 26″ x 19″, framed 32″ x 26″. The back has been professionally relined.
