The serigraph depicts the historic final play of the 1946 Army-Navy football game. With Army leading the game, 21 to 18, Navy was on the Army 10-yard line with time for just one last play. Navy gave the ball to its top running back, Lynn Chewning. But Army, led by the great All American, Barney Poole, closed ranks and the cadets gang-tackled Chewning just short of the goal line. Army won the game, its third consecutive National Championship, and preserved a 3-year undefeated war-time record. LeRoy Neiman’s original painting was commissioned by the Association of Graduates of the United States Military Academy in commemoration of 100 years of Army-Navy football rivalry. Both the painting and the artist were warmly received at a ceremony at West Point in June of 2000 for the groundbreaking for the Academy’s new Kimsey Athletic Center. As a memento of Army’s proudest moment on the athletic field, the painting will permanently hang in a position of prominence and prestige in the Kimsey Center. The artist says: “This print shows the greatest defensive play from the greatest rivalry in all of football. We have a bird’s eye view of the field. The print is democratic, showing both Army and Navy players piled up and scattered about. Nevertheless, Army won the game, so most of Army players are shown to great advantage while the Navy players are sprawled all over the field. The numbers on the players’ uniforms are accurate. A frieze along the bottom shows Army cadets in their seasonal greatcoats, cheering the great play and tossing their hats in the air. The painting is a tribute to Army defense, not only on the football field but also in its larger mission throughout the world.” As much a journalist and historian as he is an artist, LeRoy Neiman has given us another classic sports moment with “Defending Victory – 1946”.
