Sinopsis: 'LeRoy Neiman: Art & Life Style' is a superlative selection of Neiman's finest work, highlighted by the artist's notes on the people, places and events he has painted...from chic society beauties, superstars, and big business wheeler-dealers to Bowery rejects, pool-room hustlers and sidewalk hustlers. Neiman's art transcends all class distinctions to capture the kaleidoscopic social scene. We also catch an intimate glimpse of the artist at work and see him sketching his subjects 'on the spot.'
This book provides answers to intriguing questions about LeRoy Neiman such as: where does he get his inspiration? How does he view his potential subjects? What goes on in his mind during the actual creative process?
Among contemporary artists, no other eye has been so devoted to recording the pleasures and vices of its own age. He checks out the fleeting spectacle of the social scene. He is a keen analyst of our unconscious fears and petty vanities. His target is the masks we wear in public, the convenient image we project in our dealings with others. His style can accommodate a variety of subjects: haute cuisine in France's top restaurants, insights into the aristocratic manners of the highborn, the meaning of 'Blacks blacking it,' or the look and feel of a championship prizefight. LeRoy Neiman - the go-go artist in Neimanland. He occupies a unique superstar position in pop culture wile also standing alone... an original in the art community.
This is the first time that a cross section of Neiman's work has been gathered together between two covers. The meaning behind Neiman's art is given verbal and visual expression; we hear the artist's thoughts on his own paintings. He speaks directly to us as a man as well as an artist.
Nieman has done work for Playboy and The Olympics.
