An intriguing documentary to ponder on International Women’s Day. The painter Alex Katz described her as ‘an angry housewife’, which is ironic given that she was not married at the time and her house was a studio! Thought provoking. I feel grateful that we’re able to make our choices somewhat more easily in these times. Alice Neel and her children paid a heavy price, yet I doubt she could have made any other choice.
