Can’t wait to see the Alice Neel exhibit this Sunday at The De Young.
Going to be interesting to see up close, to know how much suffering and infusion of NYC energy went into her work. It’s ironic that the exhibit is called “people come first” when you learn of her tragic history.
Carlos and Alice got themselves expelled from Art Camp in the summer of 1924.
Robert Henri was one of Alice’s early teachers. Even though he was a painter, he has quite beautiful piano players’ hands.
