Move your mouse over image In “The Lights of Broadway”, LeRoy Neiman brings together a vibrant collage of the world’s most renowned musicals, and displays them on billboards in the heart of Times Square in New York City. He used black paper to display a nighttime view, and to make the neon colors stand out. If you look closely to the bottom of the page, you will see Neiman in his coveralls standing on an island sketching the beautiful scene you see before you.
LeRoy wanted to display a numerous amount of plays that the average person would of at least seen one of or heard of in their lifetime. My Fair Lady was deliberately placed at the top in bright pink, because it was LeRoy’s favorite play. From the foot traffic on every block, to the yellow taxis and fancy cars driving down street & police officers on horseback, Neiman wanted you to get the feeling that you spent a night in city that never sleeps.
This piece is a signed & numbered edition with 313/450 in the bottom left hand corner, and LeRoy Neiman’s signature in the bottom right hand corner.

Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas has the largest exhibit of LeRoy Neiman’s artwork on display. LeRoy Neiman was an American artist who lived between 1921 and 2012. He is known for his use of sriking colors, and is well known for paintings of leisure life and athletic competitions such as the Olympics, the Super Bowl, the World Series, championship boxing, PGA ant the Masters golf tournament, entertainment, and gambling to name a few. Neiman’s “Celebrating 100 years of Neon” produced in 2005 was commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor Authority through Centaur Art Galleries. “Celebrating 100 years of Neon” is a plate-signed serigraph with a total edition size of 500, of which 250 are hand-signed.
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.

Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas has the largest exhibit of LeRoy Neiman’s artwork on display. LeRoy Neiman was an American artist who lived between 1921 and 2012. He is probably one of America’s most popular artists because he was the official artist at five Olympiads. One of Neiman’s oil paintings depicted in 2008 is “High Stakes Blackjack- Vegas” displayed in Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, NV. Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas has serigraph 190/250 numbered impression signed in pencil in the lower left hand corner by LeRoy Neiman.
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” by Marc Chagall
View more information about Marc Chagall’s “Tamar the Daughter-in-Law of Judas” famous lithograph here. You can also speak with a Centaur Gallery representative by phone during normal business hours – (702) 737 1234
“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.
