So sad to hear of Mr. Neiman's passing. My thoughts are with his family. I was lucky enough to have met him twice and have his signature on several items. When he signed his Derby and Oaks posters in 1997 at the old Deitrich's, he was also signing Playboy limited edition cigar boxes. Playboy's press rep was there and was kind enough to take a professional photo of Mr. Neiman and myself, even though he was there to take photos of the cigar boxes and Mr. Neiman. Mr. Neiman told me that they would mail the photo to me and they did. I felt like I was meeting royalty, yet he treated me like an old friend. He was extremely kind. I would trade my signed items to still have the 1976 Burger King posters of his Olympic paintings that year. It was my first experience with art that really meant something to me and it is why I continued to pursue my love of art. He was the Monet of the United States. I will continue to enjoy his original pieces at the Muhammad Ali Museum.
