Pictures of people : Alice Neel's American portrait gallery by Pamela Allara( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this generously illustrated chronicle of the life and work of prolific painter and bohemian eccentric Alice Neel, Pamela Allara shows how portraits from a career that spanned the 1920s to the 1970s constitute a virtual gallery of American cultural history. While some of Neel's portraits graced the covers of publications like Ms. and Time, most of her subjects were unknowns - the marginalized, the disenfranchised, the oppressed
Alice Neel : women by Carolyn Kinder Carr( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alice Neel: Women is the first volume to collect the artist's paintings of her female sitters, among her most penetrating and accomplished works. Author Carolyn Carr analyzes Neel's five-decade exploration of the female form and psyche, deftly setting the works in their art-historical context. Examining the artist's life and oeuvre, Carr illustrates how Neel returned to the same themes throughout her career - the nude figure, a pregnant woman, mother and child - often coinciding with events in her personal life, but always bringing a new perspective to the type. Always honest - brutally at times - the portraits evoke the sitters in all their vulnerability, as Neel effortlessly captured their personalities on the canvas."--Jacket

Alice Neel by Alice Neel( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume accompanies a landmark exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art to celebrate the centennial of the artist's birth. It reviews the full range of Neel's paintings, from her early watercolors to the late work for which she finally achieved renown. Three essays, by Ann Temkin, Susan Rosenberg, and Richard Flood, examine Neel's indirect presence in her paintings, the roots of her work in the culture of the 1930s, and her portrayal of the contemporary art world. The transcript from a roundtable discussion among Neel's sitters and a richly illustrated chronology provide much new information on the artist's life and work."--Jacket

Alice Neel : the art of not sitting pretty by Phoebe Hoban( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in Undetermined and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a biography of American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984), 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. This work also is a cultural history of the artistic and political scene in 20th-century New York. Neel was an artist with a passion for painting the human figure at a time when abstraction was fashionable, resulting in years of financial hardship and obscurity. Neel emerges as a resolute survivor who lived by her convictions, both aesthetically and politically. A single mother committed to a bohemian lifestyle, Neel was also a supporter of political movements that ranged from Communism to feminism
