Alice Neel

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague

NOW CLOSED

Collector of Souls

This first ever Dutch exhibition of Alice Neel’s impressively intimate works will include around seventy of her works. Neel is above all a portrait painter or – as she herself proclaimed – ‘a collector of souls’. Her subjects included not just members of her own extended family (lovers, spouses, children and neighbours), but also celebrated members of the American art world like Andy Warhol, Robert Smithson and Frank O’Hara.
