A true classic! Ken Danby's 1972 painting of a goalie getting ready to make a save is one of hockey's most recognizable images, and has even been described as "A Canadian Icon". This 2005 poster-sized edition has been remastered from the original, and, taking advantage of the latest in imaging and print technology, gives you the boldest, brightest, most true-to-life reproduction ever available! Gain a new appreciation for "At the Crease", described here in Danby's words:
"The idea for this painting resulted from my return to playing recreational hockey, after not doing so for a few years in the mid sixties. During that time away from the game, the mask had become a part of the goalie's equipment. After an afternoon's scrimmage on the river ice, I kept recalling my experience of being confronted by the young netminder wearing a mask. It was an image that gradually intensified in my mind over the following three years until I finally had to explore it, and recruited a goalie to pose."
Hockey fans, here's your chance to own your very own copy of this legendary piece for your wall. The perfect addition to your home, office, locker room, or hockey wall-of-fame! Note: since the artist's passing in 2007, the Ken Danby studio has been closed, and this item has been taken out of production. We have purchased a limited quantity on closeout, and are making them available on a first-come, first-served basis.
