The community of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) mourns the passing of its distinguished alumnus LeRoy Neiman (1947–50, honorary doctorate 2006), a painter and illustrator whose impressionistic sketches and paintings of sporting events and what he called “the good life” made him one of the most popular artists in the United States. Neiman passed away Wednesday, June 20 in New York. He was 91 years old.
“LeRoy Neiman was part of a remarkably inclusive artistic moment in Chicago at the start of his career, and he carried on that legacy here and elsewhere with incredible diligence,” says SAIC President Dr. Walter E. Massey. “He was emphatic that the young students in his master classes come from within the city and have the opportunity to study regardless of any economic challenges.”
