Overview


Renowned artist Andy Jurinko believed the golden age of baseball was 1946-1960, an era that, not coincidentally, coincided with his childhood. It was a time that welcomed such legendary stars as Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, and Henry Aaron into the national consciousness, a fifteen year stretch marked by Robinson’s breaking of the color barrier in 1947 and by ten Yankee championships. Jurinko spent twenty years creating more than 600 portraits of the colorful characters and stadiums that typify this era, all collected here for the first time in Golden Boys. With illuminating text by sportswriter Christopher Jennison, Golden Boys is the definitive artistic portrait of a remarkable time in American sports history.

Meet the Author

For more than forty years, Andy Jurinko’s hyper-realistic paintings provided viewers with an unconventional glimpse into familiar aspects of American popular culture. Born in New Jersey in 1939, he attended the Philadelphia Museum College of Art in 1961- 1963. His first solo exhibition was in September 1967 at the Lowell Colbus Gallery in Sausalito, CA. In 1975, Jurinko moved to New York City and in 1986 he began exhibiting at Gallery Henoch in Soho, including one man shows there in 1989 and 1996. His baseball paintings have appeared on the covers and in more than twenty books. He passed away in February 2011.
