Here's two of my favourite football paintings.
There's not that many, I don't think, with this subject matter. Lowry did a few. Anybody else got favourite images of the game?

Hi Jo - I love that picture! Thanks so much. Yes, I agree, I too must get up to the Lowry some time. Thanks for that little nugget about your dad and grandad. I do love Lowry.
A very timely post in the middle of Euro 2012. Thanks Kathleen for linking to your football paintings article - and thanks Jo for adding a third.
It is a little surprising that something so ubiquitous as football - "...the working class ballet" hasn't generated more artistic representation I'm not sure that there are many other noteworthy paintings on the subject. It's been notoriously poor subject matter for cinema in "Escape to Victory" famously the footballers can't act and the actors can't play football. The"Arsenal Stadium Mystery" filmed at Highbury in 1939 has some historic value - but little cinematic merit.
I suppose there have been some famous football songs ... but "Three Lions" and "Vindaloo" really dont qualify as high art!
Perhaps after the football result last night, with England going out on penalties ... again ...we could add this image?
