Bernie Fuchs, selected as the American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) Sport Artist of the Year in 1991, passed away recently at the age of 76.

Fuchs was best known for his works in golf, auto racing and horse racing. He also painted portraits of five presidents and sports greats Arnold Palmer and Muhammad Ali.

Fuchs’ style is described on the ASAMA website as “realistically detailed, and his fascination with sunlight and the way it illuminates and transforms objects into a multitude of soft colors also gives his work a modern-day Impressionistic look.”
