Artist: LeRoy Neiman Title: Paris CafŽ .Large: Signed Lithograph Signature: Size Approx: 27 x 20 Inches . Authentic Leroy Neiman (born Leroy Leslie Runquist, June 8, 1921 Ð June 20, 2012) was an American artist known for his brilliantly colored, expressionist paintings and screen prints of athletes, musicians, and sporting events. 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 åÐ a perhaps unprecedented amount for a living artist åÐ 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. FREE SHIPPING TO THE USA! PROFESSIONALLY CUSTOM GALLERY FRAMED!
