"Major League." Proposed poster design for 1989 film of the same name. Watercolor, colored pencil, and gouache on stiff paper. 405x395 mm; 16 1/4x15 1/2 inches, on 22 1/4x19 1/2-inch sheet. Signed "Rick Meyerowitz" in lower right image, and again on verso with artist's stamp, with date of October 23, 1988.

While a different design was ultimately chosen to promote the film, Meyerowitz's characteristically dynamic and witty composition features the comedy's major stars, including Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, Rene Russo, Dennis Haysbert, Corbin Bernsen, and Wesley Snipes.
