Bestselling author Phoebe Hoban chronicles Alice Neel¿s colourful and chaotic life, from her turn-of-the-century upbringing through her later years as an art world outsider when, with the help of the feminist movement, she was finally given her rightful place as one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. Educated at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, Alice was drawn to the darker and edgier side of painting in an era when abstract expressionism reigned supreme. Considered a quintessential Bohemian and complex genius, Alice Neel was a wife, lover, reluctant mother, long time Communist, raconteur, and painter who captured such icons as Joe Gould and Andy Warhol, as well as members of her family, many of whom she convinced to pose nude. In Phoebe Hoban¿s captivating biography, the great Alice Neel lives again.
