Neel / Picasso at the Sara Kay Gallery

Friday, May 10th, 2019

Sara Kay Gallery is pleased to present Neel / Picasso, on view through July 20. The exhibition features significant portraits from private collections by the artists Alice Neel (1900-1984) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).

Neel and Picasso were contemporaries who transformed and revitalized portraiture in the 20th century. For the first time, their works will be shown exclusively side-by-side. The exhibition explores the artists’ internal landscapes, the relationships with their subjects, and exemplifies the development of modern portraiture.  Through select paintings by both artists, this exhibition offers a revealing parallel view of two key 20th century painters.

Picasso said that his work acted as a “sort of a diary.” Neel claimed she was “a collector of souls…” capturing “what the world has done [to her sitters] and their retaliation.” Linked in time, differing in approach, the parallel viewing of these two innovative 20th century painters offers insights into both their artistic achievements and the radicalization of portraiture.
