Article alert

I thought I’d alert you to an article by Michael Kimmelman in the New York Times about Chuck Close and his printmaking process (vis a vis Close’s show at the Met).

The article is also accompanied by one of those cool, narrated New York Times art slide shows. Check it out quick (before it becomes inaccessible).

The article’s well worth the read if you’re interested in how printmakers work and in collaboration (shown, Close’s “Emma,” a 113-color Japanese woodcut print made with master printer Yasu Shibata).
