The screen print is a collage of typical scenes you will see in Las Vegas, the show girl and the cowboy and you can’t forget about the gambling. At the top of the serigraph is the well-know “Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada” sign. Above the sign reads 100 YEARS 1905 – 2005. The name Neimen gave the painting, “Celebrating 100 years of Neon,” is interesting. On May 15, 1905, Las Vegas was officially founded a city. In Las Vegas, we have the Neon Museum. The Neon Museum is where all of the old Las Vegas signage goes to retire. The museum didn’t officially open until October 27, 2012, but the point giving the background to the museum is Las Vegas is known for its neon lights. You can also see many of LeRoy Neiman’s other brilliant pieces inside Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas.

The Doctor – James Whistler Lithograph

“The Doctor” by James Whistler is just one of the thought provoking pieces of art on display at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, NV. “The Doctor” is a full body portrait of Whistler’s brother who used his skill as a surgeon during the American Civil War and after in London and Paris. Whistler uses what he knows as inspiration. This is what makes his work so personal and intimate. James Whistler was one of the great artists seen during the nineteenth century though “The Doctor” is one of Whistler’s later lithographs. He loved music as well as art. “The Doctor” was etched in recognition of his brother coming to his residence in Paris to see his sick wife. He has a great reputation as an etcher. Much of his work is of family portraits. Whistler uses much detail in his brother’s face, but his use of lines and shading is exquisite. There are no colors except black in his etchings to imply harmony. Lines are more important than color and black is the fundamental are two principles he believed true. Black was also one of the first colors used by artists. During the 18th and 19th centuries, black was a dominant color in fashion. Paris became the fashion capital of the world. Lines are just a piece of music just as the lines he uses are only pieces of his art. They are only pieces of a whole.

LeRoy Neiman – Serigraph Artist

LeRoy Neiman is best known for his use of striking colors and his lively scenes of sporting events and leisure activities. He interpreted the life he knew. The setting of the serigraph is a Las Vegas casino. The viewer’s attention is brought to the center table where the dealer and the many gamblers are playing the game of “21.” The gambler’s faces are expressionless to portray their “poker faces.” Neiman has a great talent for making the observer feel a part of the scene. “21” is a fast moving game. Neiman has a very sudden style about his artwork. His style helps give the observer the impression of the rick associated with the game. Some debate the scene depicted is inside the MGM Grand. You can also see many of LeRoy Neiman’s other pieces inside Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas are center around the lion. The MGM Grand has a lion habitat and much of its entertainment includes the lions.

Tamar the Daughter-in-Law of Judas – Lithograph By Marc Chagall

“Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” is just one of many of Marc Chagall’s original lithographs that can be seen at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada. Chagall created this color lithograph in 1960. He was born in 1887 and was a Russian-French artist until 1985. He was probably one of the first European modernists to be seen. Chagall never forgot his Jewish culture either. His Jewish background probably inspired much of his work. Art tells a story; it is history. A picture is worth a million words. Chagall was asked to illustrate the Old Testament; therefore; he traveled to Palestine. He wanted to experience the “Holy Land” as it is sometimes referred to as for himself to give him inspiration for his work. “Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” wasn’t an illustration used in the Old Testament, so it was probably for himself. To remind himself of his background. To be proud of it. Later in life, he was not a practicing Jew, but he did consider himself always a Christian.

The story of Tamar and Judas can be read in the Book of Genesis. In this piece, Chagall didn’t decide to use many colors in this piece: red and black. I don’t think this painting requires much color. Red is primary which seems fitting because it is bold. From the story, we can see Tamar’s personality as bold. Chagall’s choice of red captures the viewer’s attention. Red also invokes much emotion. A biblical scene should evoke such emotion. Many of Marc Chagall’s paintings can be found at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas. All of Chagall’s paintings have a story behind them and a very real to the artist himself.
