ALICE NEEL Evans Twins.
Color screenprint on Arches Cover, 1982. 805x1069 mm; 31 5/8x42 inches (sheet), full margins. Signed, dated and numbered 46/75 in pencil, lower margin. Published by Anthology Film Archives, New York. From A Portfolio of Thirteen Prints. A very good impression with strong colors.
Neel (1900-1984) had painted the growing family of contemporary artist and friend John Evans (1932-2012) since 1978. Her oil Margaret Evans Pregnant, 1978, now in the Institute for Contemporary Arts, Boston, portrayed the powerful physical transformation and self-assuredness of the pregnant woman, a topic artists had historically overlooked. The twin daughters from that pregnancy are the subjects of the current screenprint.
