Title

Note on Art

Subject

A personal note from LeRoy Neiman on his prints, biography, and relationship with St. John's University.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman provides a fragmented commentary from the artist on his prints (and by extension work with Knoedler Publishing in the 1970s and 1980s), biography, and relationship with St. John's University. Neiman received St. John's "University Gold” award in 1985 at commencement. That said, the note itself seems to revolve around a debacle surrounding the artist’s sale of the prints at the school. The document’s reverse outlines a rough chronology of the artist’s life and career.

When the U. discovered we were wholesaling them to alumni they balked that we all of humanity making additional money on the print and backed out. The money they would make more than covered my payment demand for the mural. The schools felt I should not make extra money even if they were in fact getting the work for nothing
