Artist LeRoy Neiman was best known for illustrations that presented scenes of sports and entertainment and the people that brought those pastimes to life. Like the America of his times, from the start of his professional art career in the 1950s until his death in 2012, Neiman grew wealthy. Neiman, a child of the Great Depression, was frugal. Yet in one of his many paradoxes, he was enormously generous. In his later years, he established the LeRoy Neiman Foundation and donated nearly $20 million – a perhaps unprecedented amount for a living artist – to art institutions as well as to programs that helped disadvantaged young artists around the United States.
Neiman he knew where he had come from and how he got to where he was, and he gave back. Neiman took the subjects of photographers, cartoonists, and 19th century engravers and brought them to 20th century life. He used a palette knife to create lush, textured, and his often unmixed colors – vibrant to some, ostentatious to others – made his canvases hum with energy. He fused techniques of 1940s and 1950s action painting pioneered by Willem de Kooning and to the art of illustration and added elements of Impressionism and Expressionism. His distinctive body of work and style chronicled American life as the country came into an era of affluence. And his art appealed to people far beyond the walls of museums and avant garde galleries: it captured to attention and affection of people who were impassioned players in the American dream of toil, sweat, and success.
