LeRoy Neiman Sketchbook

The LeRoy Neiman Sketchbook is a large-format, lavish reproduction of the artist’s intimate sketches of two legendary boxing matches, and the moments in-between. Covered here is 1964’s Sonny Liston VS. Cassius Clay fight, and then in 1965—once Clay had changed his name to Muhammad Ali—their monumental rematch. The images are kinetic and timeless, capturing the grace and brutality of two major boxers during a turbulent time in American culture.
