Alice Neel was a rebel in a time of Abstract Expressionism, favoring expressive portrait painting in the 1900s. As an American portrait painter, the subjects of her work reflected the New York scene around her, focusing on her family, friends, and neighbors. Observing each subject with a fresh eye, she looked beyond their gender, age and social status and instead painted each person with empathy, reflecting the whole person.

In this zoom program, we will take a closer look at the life of Alice Neel, as told through her portrait paintings. When all eyes were focused on the Abstract Masters, Alice Neel paved her own path by bringing the people around her to life in her paintings.

Join us on April 28th from 12pm-1pm for an inter-village discussion on the life of Alice Neel, as told through her work.

If you have any questions, please contact Laura, our art therapy intern at lauramahon@gwmail.gwu.edu or contact your DC Village office.
