Description

LeRoy Neiman was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, De Paul University, and the University of Illinois.He taught at the Art Institute of Chicago’s school for ten years. Neiman moved to New York City in 1963 when he had his first one-man show at the Hammer Gallery. He then continued to portray the people and events of the world he knew best, or which intrigued him most. His best-known works are sports scenes, a reflection, he believes, of the fact that sports are universally a dominant force. He was the official artist for ABC-TV at the Olympic Games in 1972 and 1976, and at the Winter Olympics of 1980. Neiman’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world, including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and the Hermitage in Leningrad. Some people will pronouce his name wrong and spell it Nieman, but we know who they are talking about.

LeRoy Neiman passed away in 2012 after over 60 years of publication. His original works have sold for upwards of $750,000 and there is still an active receptive market for his work. Atkinson Fine Art published LeRoy Neiman’s last signed work in 2011, The Grenadier Bar.

Best known for his brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images of sporting events and leisure activities, his art is unique. It stands alone without any real comparison. It is an art which has become controversial because Neiman has broken the barriers of many of the most hallowed assumptions of modern art history and contemporary criticism. It is an art that is loved by millions of people throughoutAmerica and around the world.
