I picked up the Sunday New York Times Style Magazine last Sunday and on the cover was a fabulous painting of Jay-Z. The artist is Chantal Joffe, a 48 year old British artist. As I scoured through images I thought how much her work relates to Alice Neel. And then…low and behold…wiki too compares her to Neel! How is that? How does our eye so quickly get a reference? How amazing!
