New Elvis Harley Portrait: News from artist David Uhl. Entering his tenth year as a licensed Harley-Davidson artist, David Uhl’s body of work continues to capture the imagination of art lovers around the globe. His artwork is displayed throughout the world in museums and galleries and has also been sought by serious art collectors and celebrities alike. He has been featured on several television programs and has been referred to as ”The Norman Rockwell of Harley-Davidson artists”.
David Uhl’s latest work ”In Tune” represents Elvis Presley kicked back, enjoying a glorious Memphis spring morning. This piece of work captures Elvis outside his new home Graceland, tuning his original Gibson J200, (before its re-configuration). Behind him stands another embodied passion, the legendary 1957 Harley-Davidson® Panhead. Without a doubt he is experiencing first hand all the early fruits of his impending mega success.
This is the first depiction combining two of America’s most important icons in one painting. Endorsed by both Harley-Davidson, Inc. and Elvis Presley Enterprises, the historical magnitude of this project suggests that a series of limited edition reproductions be created. In order to accommodate the immense potential interest generated by this image, the following edition specifications will be offered.
** Large edition: (24”x30”) will number 350 with 50 artist proofs. $1850 framed.
** An exclusive oversized edition numbering 50 will be added, which duplicate the actual size of original (36”x46”) along with 25 artist proofs. $4500 framed.
All print editions will be reproduced in the finest quality giclee on canvas and arrive beautifully framed with seamless mitre joints. The oversized edition will be outfitted with a special custom hand-gilded frame.
All prints will also be hand signed and numbered and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. A decorative brass plaque displayed on the front center of the piece will be inscribed with the name of the painting and release date.
All prints will be sold through Graceland Harley-Davidson and be official licensed products of The Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
The original is 36”x46”, oil on linen and framed with a 2 piece composite hand-gilded moulding.
