Notes

One sequence [of the film "Alice Neel"] examines the mystery of Isabetta, who committed suicide in 1982, two years before her mother’s death. They saw each other only three times after 1930; during the most extended visit, in 1934, Isabetta, then 6, posed naked for a portrait. In the film her daughter, Cristina Lancella, a Cuban émigré who lives in Miami and has never met her uncles, complains bitterly about Isabetta’s abandonment. Speaking of the portrait’s possibly damaging effect on her mother, she says: “I think it’s disgusting. I would never have my children naked like that.”
