April in August 1990 by Leroy Neiman
Of all contemporary American artists, LeRoy Neiman’s appeal to both critical and popular audiences is nearly matchless with respect to longevity, consistency and sustained success. For both substance and style, he is immediately recognizable: a visual chronicler of humanity at sport and play, delivered in a bold, colorful amalgamation of elements from Social Realism, Abstract Expressionism and Abstract Action Painting.
Born in 1927 in St. Paul, Minnesota, LeRoy Neiman didn’t consider art as a possible profession until the 1940’s, after he enjoyed minor celebrity with his fellow GIs for some murals he painted in a series of mess halls. Following his Army service, he returned to the United States in 1946, and developed his artistic talent through formal education at the St. Paul Art Center (now the Minnesota Museum of Art) and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
His images have graced the walls of museums and galleries, clubs and private homes. Neiman is egalitarian in his thematic choices, for although he has gained a considerable reputation for representing society’s creme de la creme – aristocrats, celebrities, major sports figures – he is as much interested in the activities of more ordinary folk – barkeepers and showgirls, stableboys and beachgoers. It is the vitality of the moment that captures his attention and which he, in turn, communicates to a worldwide audience.
LeRoy Neiman was born on June 8, 1921 in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA as LeRoy Joseph Runquist. He is known for his work on Rocky III (1982), Rocky IV (1985) and Rocky Balboa (2006). He was married to Janet Byrne. He died on June 20, 2012 in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA.
