Chuck Close: Face Forward

From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation

January 17–April 5, 2015

Reception: Saturday, January 17, 6–8 PM

Lecture by Collector Jordan Schnitzer: Saturday, January 17, 6:30-7 PM

Chuck Close, one of America's most important living artists, earned his reputation by constantly reinventing portraiture. After making his first print in 1972, the medium became essential to his creative process. "Virtually everything that has happened in my unique work," he once said, "can be traced back to the prints." This exhibition of over 70 prints offers a rich survey of his printmaking, ranging from traditional techniques (etchings, engravings, woodcuts, and lithographs) to more unusual materials (tapestry and handmade paper pulp). It includes all of his signature subjects, such as close friends like contemporary composer Phillip Glass, family members, and fellow artists such as Alex Katz, John Chamberlain, and Lucas Samaras, as well as his iconic self-portraits.
