Description Arriving in San Francisco in 1947, at age 21, Neuman would first be exposed to the work of Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis, Clyfford Still, David Park and others. These California painters would immediately and irrevocably influence him. He writes of his experience:

"Coming from the State of Idaho to San Francisco and walking into the museum, green as a cucumber, and seeing Clyfford Still for the first time, and Sam Francis and Richard Diebenkorn all hanging there, was quite a shock. Here I'd been painting views of Coeur d'Alene Lake with the mountains!...I thought, 'I wonder what there people are doing.' I didn't condemn them at all--I thought: 'If they're in a museum there must be something to it. I don't know what but I'm going to look.'"

And look he would in a career that would take him to Europe, New York, and New England and would see him exhibit in some of the same museums as his mentors.

His work can be found in the collections of the MOMA, NY; the Hood Art Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Harvard University Art Museums, among others.
