Crossing the periods of abstraction, Pop Art, minimal and conceptual art, the American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984) has always remained against the current of the avant-garde and faithful to a very personal figuration. The retrospective devoted to the artist by the Centre Pompidou proposes to rediscover her work through two major themes: the class struggle and the gender struggle. It highlights the political and social commitment of an artist for whom the act of painting is fundamentally a search for truth.
