LeRoy Neiman died June 20, 2012 in New York City just after his 91st birthday. He was most known as an Expressionist painter. Neiman’s first work for Playboy Magazine’s fifth edition which then started him authoring for 15 year a feature titled “Man at His Leisure”. He worked for Playboy Magazine monthly even until recently. I think he was also my mom, Lois Ostrov’s most favorite painter as well.
He received many awards during his lifetime and authored twelve books of his art. Before his death, his originals could sell for up to $500,000. He surely will be missed!
