About this Piece

Alice Neel is known primarily as a painter of people. Her portraits are stylized and easily identifiable. The works are less about capturing an exact likeness and are more psychological in nature.

Although known for her portraits, she would occasionally explore other subjects like this large still life lithograph; a meditation on light.

About the Artist

Alice Neel was born in Merion Square, Pennsylvannia and graduated from the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (now Moore College of Art) in 1925. After briefly living in Cuba, Neel settled in New York City and became a member of the Works Progress Administration. Between 1935 to 1943, Neel worked in the Easel Division of the Federal Art Project. Despite the rise of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s and 1960s, Neel continued to develop her portrait paintings of regular people. Her subjects ranged from family members to strangers she encountered on the street. While depicting her sitters, Neel sought to reveal their "psychological truths."
