Artist's Description

The former world-heavyweight champion boxer John L. Sullivan, depicted in a classic pose, as if etched in stone. Sullivan was a hero to many of his fellow Irish-Americans in the late nineteenth century. He was a fighter in the old days when matches could last more than one-hundred rounds and opponents were allowed to kick, wrestle, and gouge as well as punch. After he retired, the great ‘John L.’ helped instate the modern boxing rules that we have today- including the use of gloves!
The original was completed in watercolor and gouache on Arches cold-press, in 2006.
