Alice Neel

1980 Self Portrait
Oil on Canvas
54 x 40 inches / 137.2 x 101.6 cm
National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.

Many of you may find Alice Neel's work inspiring, given our recent focus on the human form...
Have a look at the gallery section of her website and pay particular attention to her work from the 1970's and 1980's.

Is there anything you can learn from her approach? What do you think about her technique, choice of subjects, composition, use of color, tone and line?
