Sale Price $1,020.00
Printed Image signed: "leRoy Neiman". Color, 7½x10½. Page 151 from a "Playboy" magazine, depicting a rendition of the lower portion the Eiffel Tower in Paris and a sunbather on her balcony. Captioned at lower margin: "I've always liked the Eiffel Tower as a subject. I once had an apartment-studio in the Passy section of Paris and, from my balcony, I had a splendid view of the tower. I sketched its skeletal structure in all kinds of weather, all seasons and all hours of the day and night. Last spring, while visiting a friend who lives near the Champ de Mars, I began to sketch the tower again. As I drew, I noticed a shapely French soleil worshiper enjoying the sprint's first rays on a ninth-floor balcony - and, from his balcony directly across the way, a motionless secret admirer, binoculars in hand, quietly zeroing in on her unclad charms. Vive la France! - L.N." Neiman, who had contributed his first work to "Playboy" in 1954, had his drawings and commentary featured in his "Sketchbook" series in the magazine from December 1979-February 1983. Illustrator and printmaker LeRoy Neiman (1921-2012) is internationally known for his brilliantly colored, energetic illustrations of sporting events, leisure activities and celebrities, but he also produced works on historical figures and famous locations. Neiman featured Paris and its sights in a number of works. The Eiffel Tower, for example, was later featured in a serigraph in 1994, the year the artist published An American in Paris, a collection of illustrations from his visit to the city in 1991-1992. Light show through of print on verso. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 23¾x26½.
