Knoedler Publishing's March, 1996, release is LeRoy Neiman's limited edition
serigraph entitled "Royal Family".
A welcome new addition to Neiman's wildly successful series of African animal
prints, the featured serigraph presents a family of lions reclining in the cool
grass of the savannah, enjoying relief from the mid-day heat. The king of beasts
and his queen attentively scan the horizon, while their cubs nestle comfortably
between them. The print is dominated by the lions' golden mane and coat, which
blend handsomely into the setting.
LeRoy Neiman's safaris in Africa have given us extraordinary prints of lion,
zebra, elephant and cheetah which are always among his most prized images. The
"Royal Family" will immediately assume place of pride among these Neiman collections.
