Artwork ‘Fore’ a Cause – LeRoy Neiman Named Official 2008 Ryder Cup Artist

About the Artist
LeRoy Neiman is considered today one of the most important American artists of the 20th century. His use of vivid tones evokes a phenomenon of change and dynamism. Up close, his paintings appear abstract. From a distance, they become articulated into a more realistic imagery. He accomplishes this with fast moving strokes, which give the impression of action. His use of vivid color electrifies his paintings and serigraphs.
