Lot Details

This is an iconic image of the artist's friend and famed composer Philip Glass. When he is not depicting himself, Close portrays his most intimate friends and family, and as such, he is able to capture candid, open expressions of his subjects. The work is from an edition of 80. This print shows Close's fingerprint technique, an incredible process where the original work was done by applying pigment using only the artist's fingerprint. Close controls the color by applying varying amount of pigment and pressure to achieve the highly detailed finish we see here.
