Leroy Neiman

LeRoy was an artist whose paintings are immediately recognisable for their dynamic subjects and brash primary colours, often executed in household enamel paint. He blended a Pop Art sensibility with impressionistic brushwork and vibrant color. His pictures captured the essence and movement of sports personalities, film stars and jazz musicians. From the 1960s onwards the majority of Neiman's paintings focused on sport. This became formalised in 1972 when he became official painter for the Munich Olympiad, a position he would continue to hold up to the Los Angeles games in 1984. Muhammad Ali commented, "It was not unusual for me to look up from a work-out or a sparring session to see Leroy perched on a chair, off to the side, studying my movements while sketching in quick strokes."
