He was a large part of my life, but I am closer to 40 than the vast majority of posters. His art was the “sports art” that I grew up with and was even on numerous prints/serigraphs you could buy. He was also the official painter to the IOC for decades.He lost it in the 1990’s and I remember when when the US picked Peter Max for the World Cup art over him. Not that his career needed it, but that was when he really became less of a figure. axl007 By axl007, June 24, 2012 in Sports Logo News 228 Posted June 25, 2012 0 Link to post 751 posts larrypep Link to post Posted June 25, 2012 Share this post -Painter and sketch artist LeRoy Neiman, best known for evoking the kinetic energy of the world’s biggest sporting and leisure events with bright quick strokes, died Wednesday at age 91. Neiman’s paintings, many executed in household enamel paints that allowed him his fast-moving strokes, are an explosion in reds, blues, pinks, greens and yellows of pure kinetic energy.It was the essence of a basketball or football game, swim meet or cycling event that captured his imagination most. “For an artist, watching a (Joe) Namath throw a football or a Willie Mays hit a baseball is an experience far more overpowering than painting a beautiful woman or leading political figure,” Neiman said in 1972. Neiman was a World War II veteran who participated in the invasion of Normandy and fought in the Battle of the Bulge.”I just love what I do,” Neiman told the AP. “I love the passion you go through while you’re creating” and the public’s “very thoughtful and careful studied and emotional reaction of what you’re doing.”If you do not know his work please look him up-AXL Share on other sites 5,241 posts 1 axl007 Share this post 243 Banned 0 747 posts Double post, kill one–sorry. 0 Members Share on other sites chriscj83 Great thread in memory of one of the true greats. I always liked the Neiman prints that lined the walls of a barber shop I frequented for quite a few years… ones like this really impressed me. I’d never get tired of looking at them:He did a pretty wide range of sports and leisure pursuits beyond the typical North American team sports… Neiman really knew how to bring out the colour and movement in those scenes. 4,155 dfwabel 0 Posted June 26, 2012 4,155 84 Location:San Diego, CA / Parsippany, NJ Favourite Logos:New York MetsDetroit Red WingsBoston Celtics 4,155 1 3,017 posts 28,545 posts Sign in to follow this   Passing of a Legend Sports Logos njmeadowlanders Link to post Favourite Logos:New York Mets NJTank @GoldAsIce 84 Posted June 26, 2012 243 Link to post Share on other sites Being a Mets fan is like being water boarded on a nightly basis Forums Home My father has had that hanging in his home office for 22 years now.(A print of course, not the original…) Link to post Sports Logos dfwabel Share on other sites Members Posted June 24, 2012 goforbroke 1 Location:Born in Palo Alto, CA – left immediately for Milwaukee, WI – then Ft.

first_img Partager La compétition se déroulera au CNT d’Esch du 5 au 8 février. Côté luxembourgeois, Mandy Minella, qui disputera sa dernière saison, a d’ores et déjà annoncé qu’elle serait présente. La n°1 grand-ducale a également indiqué souhaiter qu’Eléonora Molinaro soit également de la partie.À l’issue de la semaine de compétition, les deux premiers seront qualifiés pour les play-offs avec la possibilité de tenter leur chance pour intégrer le Groupe mondial. Le Luxembourg tentera, de son côté, d’éviter la relégation à l’étage inférieur. La FLT a annoncé ce jeudi matin qu’elle avait obtenu l’organisation de la Fed Cup au mois de février prochain. Elle avait déjà organisé l’événement à l’échelon inférieur (Groupe 2) cette année.À l’issue de l’événement de cette année, Claude Lamberty, le président de la fédération, se montrait plutôt perplexe quant à la possibilité d’organiser à nouveau la Fed Cup l’année suivante. Mais visiblement, la FLT a trouvé les ressources nécessaires pour être choisie afin de se charger de l’édition 2020 de la compétition.Après être monté de Groupe 2 en Groupe 1 à la maison, le Luxembourg tentera cette fois d’assurer son maintien à cet échelon de l’épreuve féminine par équipes. Et la tâche s’annonce particulièrement difficile pour les joueuses d’Anne Kremer. Elles devront en effet en découdre avec la Serbie (21e nation mondiale avec 5 joueuses inscrites dans le Top 200), la Pologne (26e mondiale avec deux filles dans le Top 100), la Suède (qui pointe au 29e rang avec une joueuse qui fait partie du Top 50 à la WTA) ainsi que la Turquie et la Slovénie, respectivement 38e et 51e au ranking. Pour mémoire, le Luxembourg figure lui à la 44e place mondiale.last_img read more
