July 5 Birthday: Chuck Close

Chuck Close, artist
July 5, 1940-

Chuck Close Up Close by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan (DK Children, reprint, 2000)

What cool art. What an inspiration. Close is known for his large photorealist paintings. A spinal problem in 1988 rendered Close a quadriplegic and with adaptations, he continues to paint.
