    Description

    Frank Sinatra Clown Oil Painting. An avid and skilled, painter, Frank Sinatra produced numerous accomplished artworks during most of his adult life. This 5" x 7" oil painting depicting a melancholy clown was painted by Sinatra during the 1960s and given as a gift to his closest friend, Jilly Rizzo. The clown has many facial characteristics similar to Sinatra himself -- perhaps an unintentional self portrait? Sadly, the untimely death of Rizzo in a car accident in 1992 and Sinatra's vision problems lead to him giving up painting during altogether during the last years of his life. The painting is framed with glass to an overall size of 10.5" x 12.5" and signed by Sinatra in the lower right corner, and is in Excellent condition. With COA from PSA/DNA.
