Lot 114.  Outstanding 18” Diameter Bas-Relief of Lou Gehrig by Armand LaMontagne. LaMontagne ranks as one of America’s pre-eminent sculptors of celebrated personalities. His significant sculptures of important personalities are displayed at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the New England Sports Museum in Boston, the Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor in Fort Knox, Kentucky and the Basketball Hall of Fame, Springfield, Mass. His notable works include sculptures of Larry Bird, Ted Williams and Bobby Orr. This magnificent piece of art is signed on the front and the back. The front, signed in gold, is a 10. The back, signed in blue sharpie “Lou Gehrig by Armand LaMontagne,” also is a 10. The likeness to New York Yankee Hall of Fame star Gehrig is absolutely remarkable. With Gehrig’s penetrating eyes and warm smile, his image jumps off the black wooden background. The artwork deserves a 10 too. This scarce item is for the true Gehrig collector.
