“The identity of the sitter in Man with Rose is unknown, and thus the meaning of the still-life vignette, rose, and stick drawing of the hanged man remain unclear. When Alice Neel created this portrait, she lived in downtown New York and associated with numerous poets and journalists. This fact, along with the aforementioned symbols and the sitter's formal attire, strongly suggest the subject is a writer.” (© Whitney Museum of American Art)
