Leroy Neiman was the official Olympic painter for five separate Olympic Games. In 1976, he painted one of the U.S. swimmers in action on this large 40" by 20" acrylic on board. The olympic games are popular worldwide are were one of Leroy Neiman's favorite themes when he painted. Olympic Swimmer is a published piece and the serigraph had an edition of 300 prints. This is a spectacular acrylic on board with historical significance and would be the highlight of any Leroy Neiman collection.
"Though Neiman has long served as the most recognizable American artist of the post-war era, his recent passing has added rocket fuel to the fire of his market, with four of his works soaring into six-figure territory in recent Heritage auctions. We expect the climb in pricing to continue, and for smart investors to be paying close attention when this classic work hits the block."
