new Close proofs

Exciting new proofs of potential tapestry editions by Chuck Close:

This portrait of President Bill Clinton is the first Close tapestry to be translated from a painting! Chuck Close and Donald Farnsworth are still perfecting the colors in this piece but the overall effect, even at this early stage, is phenomenal.
