The American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984), who lived through the periods of abstraction, Pop Art, and minimal and conceptual art, always remained at odds with the avant-garde and faithful to a very personal figuration. The retrospective devoted to her 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.
