Leroy Neiman (American, 1921 to 2012)

LeRoy Neiman is known for his brilliantly colored, semi-abstract paintings. In 1954, a chance meeting with Hugh Hefner led to a longtime association with Playboy magazine for the artist. He is also well known for his extensive work illustrating sports figures and events. With his trademark Salvador Dali-esque mustache and ever-present sketchpad in hand, the eighty-year-old-plus Neiman remains a fixture at ringside for boxing’s biggest events. He died in New York City on June 20, 2012 at the age of 91 years.
