    Description

    1981 LeRoy Neiman Original Artwork from The Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder Collection. Two masters of their respective trades shared a meal at a well-known Upper East Side eatery in February of 1981, the subject leaving the meeting with a very special souvenir from the sporting world's most celebrated artist. Neiman used the 13x9" paper menu as his canvas, and brown and green markers as his medium to craft this marvelous profile of the gambling guru.

    Neiman signs the work at lower right, adding text in his distinctive script that reads, "Jimmy the Greek, of my favorite odds maker who never vacillates before he prognosticates, 10:30 repast, 2-17-'81." The artwork presents perfectly and is matted and framed to final dimensions of 20x15.5". Letter of provenance from Anthony Snyder.
