High Seas Sailing by American artist LeRoy Neiman ( 1921- 2012 ) is an action packed portrait of a sailing race in bold colors of blues, greens, and whites showing two sailing vessels in rough water battling for the lead. The crew members are all on deck and the boat is leaning into the waves very dramatically . The viewer can almost feel the excitement and the spray of water on their faces and jackets. It is an original serigraph from 1976 signed in pencil by the artist with an edition of 300. This serigraph is a printer proof ( P.P. ) This original serigraph is in good condition with a little wear and tear near the outer border, not anywhere near the image. More photos are available
