One of the most insightful and provocative portraitists of the twentieth century, Alice Neel made a small number of etchings and lithographs toward the end of her life. In this arresting life-size portrait of the New York artist Benny Andrews, Neel magically pins down the wit and spirit of a favorite friend, deploying the litho crayon with the same spirited energy as her brush.
