JRF Mourns the Death of Painter Leroy Neiman

JRF Mourns the Death of Painter Leroy Neiman

LeRoy Neiman, the artist known for his impressionistic works of some of the world's best-known sporting figures and events, died Wednesday. He was 91. Although his paintings captured everything from U.S. presidents to jazz musicians, it was Neiman’s unique paintings of the sports’ world, that brought motion and emotion to the canvas. Neiman painted Jackie Robinson twice. The artist donated a limited print of his popular painting titled "Dodger's Centennial" (seen above). It is hanging at JRF’s headquarters in New York.
