Walt S. (Walter) Louderbeck (American, 1887-1941). Watercolor on paper painting titled "Knockout" depicting the moments after a boxer has won his match. Signed along the lower left.

Louderbeck's works have been described as being filled with romance and drama, the latter of which applies most astutely to this chaotic scene. The crowd clammers and pushes their way forward towards the ring to see for themselves the results of the knockout match while the champion slouches with exhaustion yet holds aloft his glove.
