Title

Note on Art

Subject

A note from LeRoy Neiman, providing a brief chronology for his biography and career.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman provides a brief overview of the artist’s biography and career. The document divides his life into themes—ranging from receiving the GI Bill to moving to New York—grounded in chronology. Given the stylistic bend and emphasis on time-based sequence, the bullet points were mostly likely early chapter titles for the artist's memoir, All Told. The second page features a list of long-form videos and an index of unedited footage in which Neiman appeared.
