Alice Neel

There are two shows going on in the Museum of Fine Arts that are worth checking out. One is Houston's Sargents and the other is Alice Neel: Painted truths:

Alice Neel: Painted Truths both traces the evolution of Neel´s style and examines themes that she revisited throughout her career, including her social and political commitment, her stylistic evolution, and her reversal of the typical artist/model gender roles, maternity, and old age.

Having consciously set out to chronicle the zeitgeist of her time, Neel painted friends and family, as well as the celebrated artists and writers of her day, such as Andy Warhol, Frank O´Hara, and Meyer Shapiro.
