Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, LeRoy Neiman (June 8, 1921 - June 20, 2012) studied briefly in St. Paul before moving to Chicago to study at the School of Art Institute of Chicago where he then taught for 10 years before moving to New York City in 1962. Leroy Neiman is possibly the most popular painter and print maker in America, one of the few artists of the 20th century whose name has become a household word in millions of homes, nationally and internationally.
Best known for his brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images of the world of sports, exclusive leisure activities, and the world of entertainment, LeRoy Neiman's art is unique; it stands alone, without any real comparison. It is an art which became controversial because Neiman broke the barriers of many of the most hallowed assumptions of modern art history and contemporary criticism. LeRoy Neiman's style explodes with the dramatic intensity of Abstract Expressionist brush strokes, strokes that pick out action that is strikingly accurate.
Since 1970 LeRoy Neiman published hundreds of limited edition serigraphs which have become as much sought after as the prints of Miro, Chagall and Picasso. Having exhibited worldwide, from Moscow to Tokyo to Caracas, honored with many awards for his art, and published many books, Neiman is an icon of contemporary art. His work is in the permanent collections of countless museums including the Whitney Museum in NYC, Baltimore Museum of Fine Art, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas, the Hermitage in Leningrad, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
