Chuck Close, Up Close
This 48-page picture book tells the story of Chuck Close's life as an artist and his struggles -- from overcoming learning disabilities as a child to fighting paralysis as an adult. Close's monumental portraits, interpreted from photographs to reveal the fragments and wholeness of personality, are featured in collections around the world.
The publication of Chuck Close:, Up Close coincides with a major retrospective of Close's work, scheduled for 1998 at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.
