About this Piece
Printing, especially serigraphy, was LeRoy’s most prolific medium. During his busiest time period, Neiman printed an average of six serigraphs per year. The works were printed in limited edition runs by hand in New York City at several print shops through the years, namely at BrandX. Serigraphs or silkscreens are created one color at a time and sometimes have up to 60 layers of color per print. The serigraphs are recognizable by the artist’s signature primary color palette and expressionist style. Neiman also used printing techniques like monoprinting, etching, lithography.
In 1958 LeRoy began extensive travels as a “Man at His Leisure,” shaping his love for exploring the world and engaging with international cultures. Neiman captured these experiences in vibrant, idyllic paintings and illustrations that continue to portray the traveler’s dream lifestyle. The subjects extend from the glamorous Monte Carlo to the iconic Piazza San Marco, all seen through the artist’s imaginative eye.
