I never noticed how small Joe Namath's head was.

The Mark McGwire painting looks great at first, but after a couple seconds, the face becomes an awful mess.

I loved his movie reviews on the Today Show.
Goodnight, mustache guy.

Good. He's now with his fellow Playboy magazine hack, Nagel, and Thomas Kinkade, churning out mall-art in hell.

RIP. I have a print of FX McRory's Whiskey Bar up on my wall. Forgot the number, but it's my favorite piece.

"Ionic American artist" -- that's some fine writing CNN.

"Ionic American artist" -- maybe just CNN's way of calling him a pillar of the artistic community.

You mean, "Artiste!"

CavalierEternal: RIP Leonard Nimoy


Yeah, me too. I hope none of the Trekkies wander into the Sports tab and misread it. It could be mass chaos.

We cannot risk violating the Geneva Convention!

He just had a painting on Pawn Stars too.....

THE SHOW IS CURSED!!!!

"Should we break out the Leroy Neiman paintings?"
"No. That would be a voilation of the Geneva Convention."

/suprised I was the first to bring this up
 
2012-06-21 11:05:33 AM  
I remember in the 80s during the 4th of July he would paint a Statue of Liberty at the Whitehouse. He did that every year for years.

They're still working on him. He won't break. We've tried everything! Do you want me to bring out the Leroy Nieman paintings?
No. We can not risk violating the Geneva Convention!

I recall during the 1976 olympics if you bought a certain meal at BK you would get a free place mat size Neiman of an olympic star. Off my lawn.

I could never believe how popular he was.
His art was blah...

I didn't care much for his work either. But in the world of art talent is secondary to the ability to hype oneself, and he was very talented at that.

His talent lay in self-promotion. He and Thomas Kinkade; both dead now.

As I write, "Buy it Now" Nieman stuff on eBay is priced from $1.05 to 3K. Something for everybody, I guess.

Hey, but he really got a lot of notice (and hence was able to get a good price for even his prints) back in the day.

Hey, Art Folks: Nieman's stuff wasn't the same thing as Peter Max, but was he sort of the next "painter who was able to create a name/brand for himself among the middlebrows, and cash in on it" guy?

/RIP Leroy

Peter Max was better than Nieman. More versatile. Less boring. Certainly both guys who were essentially commercial artists, and liked bright colors, though.
