About the work
Chantal Joffe created this exuberant image of a young girl holding a pencil in tribute to the American portrait painter, Alice Neel. Joffe's celebrated figure paintings feature young women whose lithe outlines pulsate within lush, Munch-like interiors and cityscapes. This lyrical portrayal of a child, on the verge of tumbling over, combines pastoral innocence and new life with a hint of mischief.
