LeRoy Neiman

LeRoy Neiman’s artwork merged “a Pop Art sensibility with impressionist brushwork and vibrant color.” He was known for painting numerous public figures, especially as one of the sports realm’s most renowned artists. Rapidly executing his canvas paintings by quickly applying paint, Neiman presented life’s epic, dramatic moments. “I do not depart from the colors borrowed from life. But I use color to emphasize the scent, the spirit, and the feeling of the thing I’ve experienced,” he said.
