Painted in 1959, this early work of world-renowned artist LeRoy Neiman depicts horses in different positions on a carousel painted with broad brush strokes in many colors. It was donated to the Library in 1978 by a couple who visited and appreciated the Library’s “attractive display of paintings.”

LeRoy Neiman (1921-2012) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago where he later taught for ten years. He moved to New York City and had his first one-man show in 1963. He is known primarily for his colorful paintings of athletes, sporting events, and celebrities. His works are in museums and private collections all over the world.
