Alice Neel (1900-1984) was an American visual artist, who was known for her portraits depicting friends, family, lovers, poets, artists, and strangers. She was one of the twentieth century’s greatest portrait artists and most radical painters. Neel's early work received limited attention until the 1970s. During the last decades of her life she achieved great success.

Neel is pictured here in her Harlem (New York City) studio surrounded by her paintings in 1944.

American artist Alice Neel’s (1900-1984) lifelong artistic engagement with the figure included a pronounced interest in the nude body. Her attraction to flesh was evidenced by works produced throughout her career, notable for both their unflinching honesty and lack of erotic charge. With her brush Neel transformed naked flesh into an occasion for psychological and emotional investigation. Unsentimental and unromantic, Neel’s nudes defiantly privilege human interest over sexual pleasure.

Cindy Heller Nemser (1937-2021) was an American art historian and writer. Founder and editor of the Feminist Art Journal, she was an activist and prominent figure in the feminist art movement and was best known for her writing on the work of women artists such as Alice Neel. In the 1975 painting entitled “Cindy Nemser and Chuck,” Neel portrayed a nude double portrait of the well-known art critic and her husband, Chuck (Charles) Nemser. The pose is decorous, but the real cover stems from Cindy’s expression, which is alert with vigilant curiosity.

The portrait, painted by Alice Neel, was seen and photographed at an exhibit of her work entitled 'Alice Neel: People Come First' at the de Young Fine Arts Museum (FAMSF) in San Francisco, California.

A dry old uprooted tree left to decay on a forest floor. Over time the tree will progress through the stages of decomposition until its remains are indistinguishable from the surrounding soil.

"Hollows" are otherwise known as "tree holes".......a semi-enclosed cavity that is naturally formed on a tree trunk. They occur in old trees, irrespective of the species of tree, whether dead or living. The tree stump is a widely known feature of woodlands and natural forest trees. In most forests tree stumps are that small part of the tree trunk remaining with the roots still underground.

The official name of the church in this painting is the "Orthodox Church of Ukraine". In the wake of the breakup of the Russian Empire in 1917, the Ukrainian Orthodox Christians sought autonomy from Moscow. The independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church was proclaimed by the Directorate of Ukraine led by Ukrainian military leader Symon Petliura (1879-1926) in 1919 (during Ukraine's short-lived sovereignty in 1918–1921).

This painting was seen and photographed at a concert and exhibition to raise funds for the victims of current Russian aggression in Ukraine at Sherith Israel Synagogue in San Francisco, California.
