Printed Art signed in ink: "Leroy Neiman". Color, 28¼x23¼, matted and enclosed in a metal frame to an overall size of 37x31. The print shows the racing yacht Sovereign under sail, pursuing the Contellation, superimposed on a nautical chart of the racecourse. Neiman (1921-2012) is best known for his brilliantly colored, energetic illustrations. Based in New York City, he is recognized as the consummate sports artist of the 20th century. In 1972 he was named the official artist for the Olympic games. He was designated the outstanding sports artist in America by the Amateur Athletic Union (1976) and was given the Olympic Artist of the Century Award in 1979. His work is by no means limited to sports themes, however. His artistic themes include animals, historical and celebrity people, and cultural "hot spots." Neiman's official website describes the process used to make this print: "Serigraphy is the printmaking process LeRoy Neiman uses to create limited edition prints based on his original paintings. From the artist's painting, hand-drawn positives are produced for each color by a master printer. A separate screen is then produced for each positive. The number of screens used for each serigraph will depend on the number of colors in the painting. As many as sixty screens can be produced for some prints. Each screen is proofed by the atelier, or printer, and a preliminary print is submitted to the artist for review. The artist corrects the proof, making changes to color and form. Once Mr. Neiman gives his final approval, the edition is then hand-pulled one sheet and one color at a time by the atelier. For a limited edition serigraph, the screens are destroyed after the pulling of the complete edition. This guarantees that no additional prints can be created, and adds value to each existing print." The Royal Thames Yacht Club's Sovereign won the qualifying races to challenge the US winner, Constellation, for the America's cup in 1964. Constellation won four of five races between the boats and retained the Cup for the USA that year. Minor soiling to sides of metal frame. Otherwise, fine condition.
