Neel lived in New York City for more than fifty years, painting street scenes, still lifes, and the variety and individuality of people she encountered. She is widely acclaimed for her honest, insightful portraits of family, friends, poets, writers, fellow artists, and others with whom she came into contact. Sid Duffy was an uncle of the family who commissioned this portrait.
