Alice Neel

Today Victoria Miro Mayfair at 14 St George Street, London, opened My Animals and Other Family, an exhibition of works by late American portraitist Alice Neel (1900 – 1984). During a long career, she painted people with their pets, giving animals as human companions as much personality as their owners. Shown is Alice Neel's Pat Ladew (1949). For some strange reason this reminds me of Mrs Slocombe's "pussy" from the BBC1 series Are You Being Served? The exhibition purrs along until 19 December (CLICK).
