    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.

    • Published: October 2007
    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.
