Alice Neel’s portraits are rarely serene but always memorable. The new book Painter of Modern Life demonstrates how her early paintings range from the unsettling to the disturbing. Her later paintings largely eschew melodrama, but they are always uneasy, inviting the viewer into a direct and often alarming intimacy with their subjects. Awkwardness abounds, and with it sometimes dark comedy.
