About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of paintings by a popular sports artist features his impressions of the French capital, depicting an array of monuments, museums, nightlife, parks, and grand boulevards, and includes sketches made from a table at Fouquet's. BOMC Div.

From Booklist:

Neiman is a prolific, accessible, hence extremely popular, artist with a great sense of motion and style. His best-known works are splashy and colorful renderings of people at play, engaged in either sports, socializing, or grand public events. He combines all of these subjects in this exuberant celebration of one of his favorite places, Paris. A GI cook with the American First Army, Neiman took part in the liberation of Paris 50 years ago, and has returned many times since, pen and paper in hand, to record the city's enduring charm. In fact, some of the most vibrant and pleasing reproductions in this lavish volume are pages from a sketchbook he worked in at "his" table at Fouquet's in 1991 and 1992. Ever suave, Neiman has the connoisseur's light and accurate touch, capturing the energy, theatricality, and sensuality of fashionable Paris in images awash in bright colors and animated by high spirits. Neiman's kicky and moneyed Paris is a giddy dream and a welcome escape. Donna Seaman
