    Having known Chuck Close since the late 1960s when the artist was creating his first 'portrait' masterpieces in an unheated Soho loft, Finch chronicles Close's childhood battles with illness and dyslexia and his rise to the pinnacle ofthe art world. At the age of 48 he was struck down by an occluded spinal artery that left him a partial quadriplegic. With extraordinary determination, Close overcame this potentially career-ending disability, not only learning to paint again but producing work of extraordinary richness that equals or surpasses his previous achievements. Illus., 75 in color. 352p.

    A critical survey of the full range of artist Chuck Close's career in which he has employed an array of mediums ranging from the conventional - oils, acrylic paint, and pastel - to the exotic, including paper pulp collages and huge images accumulated from tens of thousands of fingerprints, as well as innovative forays into photograhy, in a relentless pursuit of portraiture. Christopher Finch offers engaging, in-depth analysis - supported by four decades of studio visits and thousands of hours of conversation with the artist - from the continuous-tone airbrushed heads of the 1960s and 1970s, to the painterly 'prismatic grids' of the past two decades. Addenda. With more than 300 illustrations. 336p.

    At the outset of his career, Norman Rockwell was not the most likely candidate for long-term celebrity; he was just one of many skillful illustrators working within the conventions of the day. But there was something tenacious about his vision, and something uncanny about his access to the wellsprings of public taste. Although technically he was an academic painter, he had the eye of a photographer and, as he became a mature artist, he used this eye to give us a picture of America that was familiar-astonishingly so-and at the same time unique.It seems familiar because it was everyone's dream of America; and it was unique because only Rockwell managed to bring it to life with such authority. This was, perhaps, an America that never existed, but it was an America the public wanted to exist. And Rockwell put it together from elements that were there for everyone to see.Rockwell helped preserve American myths, but, more than that, he recreated them and made them palatable for new generations. His function was to reassure people, to remind them of old values in times of rapid change.
