JUSTIN EAGLETON - ARTIST . ILLUSTRATOR . DESIGNER .
Duncan Edwards was an English footballer who played for Manchester United and the England national team. He was one of the Busby Babes, the young United team formed under manager Matt Busby in the mid-1950s, playing 177 matches for the club. He was noted for his physical strength, toughness, and level of authority on the pitch, and has been ranked amongst the toughest players of all time. One of eight players who died as a result of the Munich air disaster, he survived initially but succumbed to his injuries in hospital two weeks later. Many of his contemporaries have described him as one of the best players with whom they had played.
This mixed media acrylic painted portrait was recently unveiled at The Duncan Edwards Foundation in Dudley at the heart of Black Country to much acclaim. This portrait of Edwards is a fitting tribute to this iconic footballer and was painted in acrylic and uses archival news footage surrounding the player and tragic events in the background.
10% of all monies raised from the sales of this limited edition artwork will go directly to support the future of the Duncan Edwards Foundation who continue to tell the story of this iconic player and his team mates and keep the legacy alive in his hometown of Dudley, England.
