Subject

LeRoy Neiman's club card for The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows in Beverly Hills, California.

Description

This club card for The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalow in Beverly Hills, California proves indicative of not only LeRoy Neiman's intimacy with the establilshment but also his interest in leisure culture and travel; this interest was first stoked by the artist's 1960s European tour, "Man at His Leisure" (MAHL), sponsored by Playboy. As indicated by the courtesy card, the artist was a frequent guest at Beverly Hills Hotel, the local being the reference for his iconic Polo Louge, a work featuring at range of celebrities and reproduced in the 1988 December issue of Playboy. His visits to the hotel began in the early 1970s, following his many trips to Lost Angeles in the early 1970s and joint exhibiton with Henry Fonda at Upstairs Gallery, a gallery based in Beverly Hills proper, in 1977.
