LeRoy Neiman

LeRoy Neiman was a sports artist, a chronicler of contemporary lifestyles and a creator of the action-subject. He is credited with reviving figure painting during the years of the abstract movement when the figure, and realism in general, were abandoned. Neiman paints with a technique that often starts with his own Impressionistic style and continues with a process that looks very similar to the action paintings of the Abstract Expressionists. Accident and chance seem to play significant roles in determining the final appearance of his creations. This is seen in Neimans spontaneous application of paint and color. He paints quickly to grasp moments in time. His works are held in the collections of both the Baseball and Football Halls of Fame, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Portland Museum of Art, The Hermitage Museum in Leningrad and universities throughout the United States
