Neiman also made a cameo appearance in Rocky Balboa

there is no mistaking that he was a talented artist. Sylvester Stallone sure thought so, which is why he had him produce exclusive art for the Rocky franchise starting in 1981. He did the painting above, of Rocky and Apollo Creed, which was featured in the end credits for Rocky III, as well as this Stallone portrait, perhaps his best-known work. But for a generation hooked on cheesy sports films of the '80s, Neiman was a fixture not just with his brush but also his acting, as Stallone cast him as a ring announcer in Rocky III, IV, and V.

Van Gogh Etten, Drenthe and The Hague

Van Gogh returned to Etten in April 1881 for an extended stay with his parents. He continued to draw, often using his neighbours as subjects. In August 1881, his recently widowed cousin, Cornelia "Kee" Vos-Stricker, daughter of his mother's older sister Willemina and Johannes Stricker, arrived for a visit. He was thrilled and took long walks with her. Kee was seven years older than him, and had an eight-year-old son. Van Gogh surprised everyone by declaring his love to her and proposing marriage. She refused with the words "No, nay, never" ("nooit, neen, nimmer"). After Kee returned to Amsterdam, Van Gogh went to The Hague to try and sell paintings and to meet with his second cousin, Anton Mauve. Mauve was the successful artist Van Gogh the starry night. Mauve invited him to return in a few months, and suggested he spend the intervening time working in charcoal and pastels; Van Gogh went back to Etten and followed this advice.
