Alice Neel: People Come First

09.17.2021 - 02.06.2022

“I have tried to assert the dignity and eternal importance of the human being”
Alice Neel: Mike Gold, Daily Worker, 1950

Alice Neel (b. 1900; d. 1984) is one of the most radical artists of the 20th century. A fervent advocate for social justice, humanism, and the dignity of people, she considered herself a “collector of souls.” Her works reflect the spirit of an era, the inner history of New York, focusing on those who experienced injustice as a result of sexism, racism, or capitalism, as well as those who combatted it. Showcasing her inclusive, democratic spirit, Neel painted people from a range of backgrounds and social statuses.,
