Introduction by Dave Hickey
Chuck Close’s frighteningly intimate, deceptively straightforward portraits have become an indelible part of American art. Here, Close uses his close-range approach in interviews with artists he’s painted over the years, allowing for a candid glimpse into the minds of three generations of American artists. A real insider’s view of the creative process.
