About this Piece
One of LeRoy’s first forays into art was creating posters for local merchants at a young age to advertise their store sales. Later, as an established artist, he often made posters to commemorate and promote special sporting and cultural events. Neiman’s posters remain a tribute to his vibrant work and life.
As part of his commissioned work, LeRoy was thrown into a more luxurious lifestyle in some of the finest restaurants in the world, which he admired and depicted with wide-eyed fasciation. During his culinary exploration, Neiman formed the belief that haute cuisine was not simply about the food but rather a type of theater. He sought to capture the various roles within this theater to comprise lively dining scenes.
