Brand Neiman.

Leroy Neiman, the popular sports artisté, passed away at the age of 91. Although his streaky, colorful, kinetic paintings were not everyone’s cup of tea, you had to admire the guy’s old-fashioned raconteur style — sporting his signature handlebar moustache — as he sat ringside at every major professional sports event, painting such athletic legends as Muhammad Ali, Joe Namath, and Michael Jordan.
