A Manchester-based artist, Michael Browne, has presented this ambitious painting of United players past and present to pay tribute to their dominance of the English game over recent years.
The painting can be found at the National Football Museum (in the Urbis building in town).
Browne is behind the famous The Art of the Game painting which features Cantona and is already displayed at the museum.
“I really wanted to do a painting of the players through time,” said Browne. “The club has won so much and the images are very important. It is Renaissance in style, but also very northern, with an industry and cobbled streets feel to it. It is designed to be a parade of players with Old Trafford on the right. The Busby Babes are there and I also wanted a gladiatorial theme, which depicts them walking away from a Coliseum-style venue.”
