Chuck Close - I really like the way every square have different colours but have the same colour schemes to make .

Chuck Close - I really like the way every square have different colours but have the same colour schemes to make a face. Jonathan Jones: Watch out Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst: Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein are coming to galleries in the UK and their ideas are bold and breathtakingly original.

It was organized by Deborah Wye, Chief Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books. Over the years, Close's works have evolved from harsh black-and-white images to colorful and brightly patterned canvases of an almost abstract painterliness. Chuck Close was organized by Robert Storr, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture. The exhibition is made possible by Michael and Judy Ovitz. A generous grant is also provided by Banana Republic.

Chuck Close received his MFA from Yale University. In 1969 his work was included in the Whitney Biennial, and was first exhibited at MoMA in 1973. In 1988, Close was paralyzed following a rare spinal artery collapse; he continues to paint using a brush-holding device strapped to his wrist and forearm. Chuck Close reinvented painting with his monumental portraits, rendered with exquisite, exacting.


Perfect thank you
Being published by MOMA in the 1990's, this book has all the quality you would expect: well-designed and handsome with excellent image quality. It is a large but not ponderous book -- at 223 pp and 3.75 pounds, it won't start hurting your hands after fifteen minutes. Essentially, this is an book intended to be used and enjoyed, not a book intended to impress.

This is important and important and revealing retrospective of Close's approaches to portraiture. My two favorite text pieces in the book managed to celebrate Close's aesthetic achievements while placing his work in revealing perspectives: "Changing Expressions -- Printmaking" by Deborah Wye and an interview with Close conducted by Robert Storr.

While in Chicago in the Summer of 1998, I happened across an astounding exhibition of work chronicling the life's work of Chuck Close at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This book is a catalogue of the traveling exhibition that is no less astounding and amazing. Chuck Close is an amazing human who focuses on portraits of human heads and most are executed on a grand scale. The book will take you through his life, via his work, chronologically. Not to be missed are the portraits, done in watercolor, that while inches away from the work, I could not tell it wasn't a photograph. The best thing about the book is that it catalogues every piece in the retrospective and is formatted in a scale that conveys the grandness of the paintings. It is a truly amazing and intriguing body of work that is not to be missed.
While at the MoMA I happened across the Chuck Close exhibit. I had heard of him, but had never seen his work. As I walked through the exhibit I thought to myself, "big deal, a bunch of 9 foot tall photographs." But when I notice the medium was acrylic I was astonded! This book captures the unbelievable talent of this amazing artist. It shows his the vast array of materials he used from paint, to pieces of paper. i would highly recommend buying this book! It is one of my favorites.
Big book! I bought this for my shiftless but talented cousin but read it cover-to-cover before mailing it to him. Close's work is fantastic.
Great book, great artist.
