GALLERY CLOSED AND WILL NOT REOPEN... Before you question this signature I suggest you read Neiman's Autobiography, which came out 2 weeks after his death. In the book you'll see the variety of signatures he used over the years. Piece is framed in high quality wood frame with museum glass... The watercolor is on the outline of the Femlin, the ice cream cone and his hand.
I have a collection of Original LeRoy Neiman... That have been in my family for years. It's time to sell. Reasonable offers will be considered. My father was the original pastry vendor to the "very first" Playboy Club/s/ and as a result of that relationship acquired many of these Femlin's and some Acrylics.
The opening GM (Arnie Morton, who went on to develop Morton's Steakhouse and whose son Peter, the founder of Hard Rock) for the Chicago Club was a dear friend and wanted dads deserts in there. Dad owned an operated a highly successful South Side Chicago landmark restaurant for years in Beverly, The Surrey Restaurant. Many dignitaries dined there including Mayor Daley, LeRoy Neiman, Hugh Hefner, Senator Everett Dirksen, amongst others. I've met all the dealers, auctions, gallery owners, brokers, etc... And I know what these pieces bring in well located Gallery's in New York, London, San Francisco, etc...These were on display at Tim DeWine's Gallery in Chicago and were meeting with great success until his untimely death. Tim looked at each one of these and believed them to be the real deal.
