    Story / Additional Info : Happy Birthday Mr. President in Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962 Madison Square Garden was filled with more then seventeen thousand well-wishers honoring President John F. Kennedy, Jr. on the occasion of his forty-fifth birthday. LeRoy Neiman’s remarkable serigraph freezes this historic moment and its extraordinary celebrants in time. The music world sent its finest to the party: Bobby Darrin, Maria Callas, Ella Fitzgerald and Harry Belafonte all sang that unforgettable night. But the evening is perhaps best remembered for the beauty and presence of the incomparable Marilyn Monroe. Neiman has placed her in the foreground, singing “Happy Birthday” to the obvious delight of Kennedy and his admirers. They included the most prominent figures of the day. Lyndon Johnson would assume the presidency barely eighteen months later. JFK’s brothers Bobby and Teddy were present, and Neiman has captured in their likenesses the clear-cut features and expansive smiles so unique to the Kennedy clan. Adlai Stevenson, Ambassador to the United Nations, New York City Mayor Robert Wagner and Madison Square Garden Chairman Irving Mitchell Felt all graced the party as well. John F. Kennedy, like LeRoy Neiman, is known as a master of style and an efficient, eloquent communicator. Kennedy used lean, tough oratory to convey his unique outlook on life. Neiman, as can be seen in “The President’s Birthday Party,” makes particular good use of incisive, vigorous brushwork and a special sensitivity to color to share his artistic insight.
