Film About Painter Alice Neel to Screen at Brooks

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2007 at 4:00 AM

At 7:30 on Thursday, July 12, the Brooks Museum of Art will present Alice Neel, an independent film about the self-described "collector of souls."

Neel (1900-1984) was a dedicated portrait painter for six decades. According to the Brooks Museum website, "She sacrificed almost everything for art, delving so far into the psyches of her sitters she would almost lose herself."

Neel's grandson, filmmaker Andrew Neel, "puts together the pieces of the painter's life using personal archival video and intimate one-on-one interviews with Neel's surviving family."

Alice Neel is one of several independent films the Brooks is presenting in association with Emerging Pictures, a New York-based film company. To purchase tickets, visit the Brooks’ website.
