A little skimpy on the interpretation, although two of my favorite of her works were pictured (the portrait of Annie Sprinkle and Neel's last self-portrait). I also discovered a few other works that inspired me.

Alice Neel waves her magic brush and captures her subjects beauty and grotesqueness beneath gobs of yummy, yummy paint. This book doesn't contain the painting of her lover pissing in a sink that I adore, but is definitely worth a long, long look.
If you are looking for a nice collection of color repros to study contemporary portraiture from,t his book is for you! Alice Neel is always inspiring, but in this dosage, she'll knock your socks off!
