Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Alice Neel: There's Still Another I See, an exhibition focusing for the first time on pairings of Alice Neel's paintings of the same sitter, this exquisite book illuminates and expands upon the exhibition with additional works and an essay by Minna Moore Ede, which draws connections between Neel's art and that of Old Masters such as Goya, whom Neel greatly admired, underlining the art historical grounding of her radical vision and affirming her place in the pantheon.
With paintings ranging in date from the 1930s to the 1980s, it charts physical transformations over time, changes of mood, temperature or temperament, in sitter and artist, along with developments in Neel's art, which grew ever more penetrating. It gives a sense of what compelled her to look at and paint people more than once, and by extension to know as much as possible about the people and the world around her.
The 95 page otabound publication with silk screened cloth dust jacket is richly illustrated with 44 colour plates. It is designed by Joe Hales and printed by Roy Killen.
