  1. ?
  2. in 1935 a liason with Alice Neel

Children of José Santiago Negrón and Alice Neel:

  1. Richard Neel


About this time, Alice Neel [1935] she meets José Santiago Negrón, a nightclub singer and guitarist from Puerto Rico. Negron leaves his wife and infant child, Sheila, and moves in with Neel. Sheila is the subject of at least three of Neel’s paintings.

He was depicted by Neel as "having the hips of a matador," as well as lazily lying around all day. In her attitude toward men, Neel is very much the zoologist, a cold observer, an active lover (although Hoban never offers any particulars on this score) and an engaged sufferer of the consequences, which, in the case of Negron, include an abortion, the birth of a son, Richard, with a sight deficiency and Negron’s immediately leaving her for a saleswoman from Lord & Taylor.
