Description
  • Artist: ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE
  • Print Title: Alice Neel, 1984
  • Alice Neel (1900-1984) was an American visual artist, who was known for her portraits depicting friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers.
  • This intimate and poignant portrait of her was taken in New York when Neel was eighty four, just a week or so before her death from cancer. Photographed with her eyes shut and mouth open, her portrait is a study in old age and the ephemeral and transient nature of human life, an apparently prescient reminder of her imminent death.

  • Printing Date: 1980's
  • Printed in Japan
  • Image size approx. 10 X 12 inches
