The featured serigraph portrays Secretariat in full stride, nearly airborne, characteristically stretching toward the finish line. The red-hued horse and his jockey (Ron Turcotte) wear their unique blue and white check silks, representing the legendary Meadow Stable. Vibrant in color and meticulous in detail, Neiman also captures the white wisps in the cannon and fetlock.
LeRoy Neiman previously released Secretariat (Big Red) in 1973 and Secretariat II in 1990. It is a testament to the horse’s greatness that Neiman has released prints of him three times. Among humans, only Muhammad Ali and Frank Sinatra have been so honored. Truly exclusive company.
Neiman paintings and prints are as prized for their beauty as their investment potential. His earlier Secretariat serigraphs listed above have long since sold-out and currently can command upwards of $8000 on the secondary market.
The serigraph was produced in a limited edition of 250 numbered impressions measuring 25 ˝” x 34" and signed by the artist. Serigraphs purchased through Secretariat.com will contain the added bonus of owner Penny Chenery's signature as well. Price includes insurance and domestic shipping.
"The Great Secretariat" was commissioned in part to benefit the Secretariat Foundation, which is devoted to the fields of research, rehabilitation, and retirement for Thoroughbred horses... a great painting for a great cause! Anyone who appreciates fine art will treasure this portrait of a great champion for generations to come.
