ABSTRACT
This article profiles portrait artist Chuck Close. At Yale, Close considered himself a junior Abstract Expressionist, but he understood that this was no longer a path to success so he invented his own signature style. Close began painting monumental portraits that are now perceived as part of the modern canon. He made a self-portrait of himself in the nude, based on a photograph, that gained him notoriety.
