Description :Neiman's trips to the grasslands of Kenya, which resulted in the book LeRoy Neiman On Safari, included an extended visit with cheetahs.The artist recalls: "One time when we were on safari in Africa we spent three or four hours in a Hummer following a number of cheetahs who had isolated a cape buffalo. Cheetah are friendly cats and won't bother you or run away if you get close in your vehicle. We were able to watch them stalk their prey. I've heard of wild game hunters or tourists who are anxious to witness a kill, but I was actually rather delighted when the buffalo managed to escape. I didn't feel bad for the cheetah because they all looked very healthy. They were obviously good hunters and I was sure they'd find another meal soon enough."

Neiman was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota and was abandoned by his father at an early age. Neiman and his mother, Lydia, were forced to fend for themselves. Neiman distinguished himself by drawing. In 1942, Neiman left high school to enlist in the US Army, where he spent four years before returning to St. Paul to finish his high school degree. Neiman studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (where he also later taught), the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois.
