What do we see in this poster?
Printed on a poster, this 19th Century Baseball Wall Art depicts an exciting sports scene in which two teams compete against each other. The artwork was created by Henry Sandham in the late 1800s and is now housed in the Boston Public Library. We see a baseball field, some players and a referee practicing their sport during a pleasant summer day. In the background we see a hilly landscape and the spectators who have gathered on a hill to watch the spectacle. The field is fenced and American flags fly, embodying the free spirit and pride of the USA. The image is mostly in green and brown tones. The players in their white, red and black uniforms stand out well. Although baseball is not widespread in our part of the world, it is undoubtedly one of the main sports in the United States. The work expresses the artist's connection to this sport, but also to the American spirit that strives for freedom and greatness.
