Alice Neel at the Met

Earlier this month, the New York Times did an article about the Alice Neel retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum. She has been a hero of mine for a long time and I’m happy to see her getting this level of acknowledgment.

After reading the article I spent some happy hours poking around the internet and found this lovely portrait done by Neel (1900 – 1984). There’s a lot more out there, including some interesting interviews.
