Collection: LeRoy Neiman

The world knows LeRoy Neiman as one of the world’s most popular and commercial artists. He was the painter who captured the Olympics as an impressionistic kaleidoscope of global competition. He was the showman who mixed with champions—from Muhammed Ali to Joe Namath to Secretariat—and cultural icons—from Leonard Bernstein to Frank Sinatra—turning celebrity into art. He was the media master who painted on live TV and enlivened books and magazines—Playboy, Time, and more—with his bright sketches. Throughout his exuberant life and his flamboyant career, LeRoy Neiman had no trouble being known. Today, he merits recognition for more than just his body of artwork—that is, for his extraordinary legacy as one of the art world’s leading educators, authors, and philanthropists.
