Larry Brown Original LeRoy Neiman Used for Newsweek Cover December 12 1972

Washington Redskin running back Larry Brown, with his unofficially retired #43 figuring prominently in this piece, is portrayed by world-renowned abstract artist LeRoy Neiman for a 1972 Newsweek cover story (Dec. 4, 1972 - The Running Backs). Neiman clearly uses impressionistic colors to center the focus on Brown alone for the story, but he also styles it so as to place the 1972 NFL MVP into a world where he stands alone - a heroic figure for sure, separated from a play that is most certainly unfolding around him, as if the Lombardi-coached Pro-Bowler is one step ahead of that which is happening around him. It is a style that distinguishes Neiman - he portrays the action, the direction, and while at the same time separating the athlete, or the scene, from the bigger picture with a sphere of turbulent color and abstracted forms. This is an original oil on panel, signed by the artist on front, as well as signed and inscribed on back by Neiman, “Newsweek 12-4-72 Brown Washington.”
