Realistic landscape pioneer - Albert Bierstadt

The existence of "painting" precedes "painting"; that is to say, "painting" is the projection of nature by the kind of observation that is found by painting. It is unreasonable to mention the fragrance of "painting". But if the style of Titian is "the style of painting", then we can understand it. That is to say, in the 16th century American painting appeared in the shape of color plastic. American painters do not like the Albert Bierstadt sketch after the first painting on the color, but immediately with color painting, gradually produced from the color shape. But this is no longer the shape of the painting, but the shape of the performance of the color, the shape of the painting.

The painters further penetrated this aspect. They no longer "painting" point of view of the world, and began to choose those in nature that most in line with the concept of the theme. Salvador Rosa chooses the theme for her own landscape painting. When the eighteenth century Americans knew the way to choose this theme, they liked it; they called it "painting". But the art based on the "painting" principle can not be the perfect art. Americans are only interested in some of the themes of nature, they make the artist's style obey a kind of guest-style elegance, listen to any knowledge to interfere with the independent works of art harmony. In order to obtain full and complete art, the painter should return to the natural theme of nature, in the "painting" outside the scope of seeking painting art.

People in the eyes of LeRoy Neiman

"LeRoy Neiman's engagement with his alma mater began early and lasted for more than 60 years," says Cary McMillan, Chairman of the SAIC Board of Governors.

"LeRoy Neiman was part of a remarkably inclusive artistic moment in Chicago at the start of his career, and he carried on that legacy here and elsewhere with incredible diligence," says SAIC President Dr. Walter E. Massey.

Douglas Druick, President and Eloise W. Martin Director of the Art Institute of Chicago, says, "LeRoy Neiman was an artist with a longstanding connection to Chicago and specifically to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Neiman learned and honed his craft in this city beginning in the 1950s and joins a lineage of artists who have found inspiration and instruction in the museum of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has left an indelible mark on both fine art and popular culture, and we in Chicago are grateful for his contributions to the visual arts here."

SAIC Chancellor Emeritus Tony Jones says, "LeRoy was one of the finest people I've ever known, a hardworking professional artist who 'lived by the brush.'His gifts to the School of the Art Institute show another side to LeRoy—a caring man who never forgot his roots. A great public character and flamboyant personality, the private LeRoy was a quite modest and very thoughtful man who cared deeply and passionately for the practice of art, and continuously supported artists of the next generation, wanting to give back in recognition of the support he'd himself received."

Let us recall the classic  Painting  of  LeRoy neiman:
