James Lumbers The Goalie Mask

" THE GOALIE MASK "
James Lumbers

75 s/n Canvas Giclee 24" x 36" $895
495 s/n Giclee Paper Print 14" x 21" $275


The goalie mask was introduced into the NHL by Jacques
Plante in a game with the Rangers on November 1,
1959 after receiving an injury to his bare face. Over
the protest of coach Toe Blake, he finished the game
wearing his mask.This painting by artist James Lumbers
shows some of the evolution in masks that took place
over the years. The Sawchuk mask followed after the Plante
example and was used by several goaltenders. Goalies
added their individual personalities to their masks as
time passed. Gerry Cheevers displayed all the cuts and
stitches he received on his mask. Tony Esposito had
his personally shaped mask. Jim Rutherford was
one of the first to display the graphics of his team on
his mask. Mike Palmateer's mask was changed to
give more protection to the neck. Ken Dryden chose
graphics on his mask for visibility.Patrick Roy wore a
mask that had evolved into today's style offering good
protection against flying pucks and better
neck protection.
