Selected Works

Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty
Phoebe Hoban's "Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty," the first major biography of this major 20th century artist to be published on December 7 by St. Martin's Press
Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art
The first biography of this celebrated artist, a national bestseller and New York Times Notable book of the year. “Compulsively readable….Hoban’s depiction of the glitzy 1980s art world is deadline accurate.
