Alice Neel

13 06 2015

Alice Neel (January 28, 1900 – October 13, 1984) was an American visual artist, who was particularly well known for oil painting and for her portraits depicting friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers. Her paintings are notable for their expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity. Neel was called “one of the greatest portrait artists of the 20th century” by Barry Walker, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, which organized a retrospective of her work in 2010.

Work jumps out at you. There is so much lightness to it. Even in the darker pieces. She appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and I remember the program. Not because of her work but because of her.
