Dong Kingman, the artist who painted it, calls this striking watercolor Pigskin Game. In it are all the bright, and sometimes grim, aspects of football juxtaposed to form a skillfully decorative spectacle. Kingman, who was born in San Francisco and educated in China, returned to the U.S. as a young man and, after World War II service in the Army, quickly established himself as a major painter. Now represented in most leading museum collections, including New York's Metropolitan, he teaches at Columbia University.
