This year, her captivating portraits were the subject of a major travelling exhibition, Alice Neel: People Come First, which opened at The Metropolitan Museum of Art back in March, and will be travelling on to Guggenheim Museum Bilbao on 17 September, before heading to Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco next March.
Accompanied by a solo show at David Zwirner opening on 9 September 2021 and a major retrospective at Centre Pompidou rescheduled for October next year, it seems there will be many an opportunity to catch a glimpse of her unparalleled work.
