Summary
This volume presents a survey of the works of American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984). Neel became known for her oil on canvas portraits of friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers. Her paintings are notable for their expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity. She was unique for her time because she was a portrait painter at a time when this was traditionally the role of a male artist. Although the book focuses on her portraits, it also covers the artist's early social realist paintings and cityscapes, tracing the evolution of Neel's style and examining themes that she revisited throughout her career
