Big Klu– Watches Over All
12" x 16", Oil on Canvas
The front courtyard of Great American Ball Park is so busy visually, it's hard to pare it all down to a composition. Here the statue of Ted Kluszewski, the former Reds slugger, is in the on deck circle observing Joe Nuxhall's pitch. There are several statues commemorating the greats of the game in Cincinnati and in a totally improbable juxtaposition of time and space. They mostly played at Crosley Field (across town) and in different decades.
