A note from LeRoy Neiman on artistic reference.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman touches on a range of his artistic references. The writing opens with a nod to nightlife. Subsequently, Neiman speaks to his interest in Holland and modern Dutch painting. And, the note closes with a list of artistic movements to which the artist also looked. Inserted into this discussion of reference, Neiman provides an abbreviated discussion of the concept of “the study”. (Neiman writes, “I draw in paint / Never make drawings preparatory for paintings.”)
