This auction is for one rare early Aldo Luongo charcoal sketch of a man with his arm around a young girl. This lovely image is fully framed and glazed measuring 440mm high x 315mm wide. Aldo Luongo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1941, of Italian heritage. Shortly after his graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires in the early 1960s, Luongo went to the US to play professional soccer for the New York Cosmos. After his athletic career was cut short due to an injury, he arrived in New York City with a dream to pursue his artwork full time. In the early 70’s, he had his first major success with reproductions of his black & white drawings. Not only were these prints released to great critical acclaim, they were a huge commercial success as well. Aldo Luongo has continued his reign at the top of the contemporary art world for almost four decades. He has received numerous awards and honours, including being named a 3-time official Olympic Artist (Summer 1988, Summer 1996, and Winter 2002); an official World Cup Artist (1998); an official US Women’s World Cup Artist (1999); and the 1999 Sports Artist of the Year (US Sports Museum.). This original drawing is rare to find in NZ and in excellent condition. Priced to sell.
