Alice Neel

Question: Why pay £8.50 (concessions £6.50) to view bad portraits at the Whitechapel Gallery (title link) when you can see great portraits at the National Portrait Gallery for free (CLICK)? Answer: Alice Neel: Painted Truths is the first major exhibition in Europe of works by this influential American artist (1900–1984). It brings together more than sixty of her most important works from a host of international public and private collections, including this ghastly portrait of The De Vegh Twins (1975). If you want to take a close look at Andy Warhol's operation scars, it's a must. Alternatively, CLICK to visit the Telegraph slide show. The exhibition continues until 17 September. Tip: entry is free on the first Wednesday of the month. Wow!
