Golden Art Editions
We are excited to announce #7 in our ‘Golden Art Editions’ series: “Chuck Close, Dalai Lama, 2005″.
Our definition of a ‘Golden Art Edition’ is:
- a limited art edition;
- created by a leading established or emerging artist;
- released at least 2 years ago;
- and is in our opinion, miraculously not sold out yet.
We offer these Golden Art Editions, in close cooperation with their publishers, for a limited time of 2 weeks per edition.
The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama was a major art exhibition that presented art as a lens through which to see our common humanity and explore the many meanings of peace. It featured works from 88 artists representing more than 25 countries and began its global tour in 2006. It was created through a collaborative effort with the Executive Director of the exhibit and President of the Committe of 100 for Tibet, and by representatives of The Dalai Lama Foundation. Chuck Close was one of the artists who created a work for this exhibition. We are delighted that we can now offer you this Chuck Close edition as part of our Golden Art Editions program.

About: Chuck Close (b. 1940, Monroe, WA) is renowned for his highly inventive techniques of painting the human face, and is best known for his large-scale, photo-based portrait paintings. In 1988, Close was paralyzed following a rare spinal artery collapse; he continues to paint using a brush-holding device strapped to his wrist and forearm. His practice extends beyond painting to encompass printmaking, photography, and, most recently, tapestries based on Polaroids.
In 2000, Close was presented with the prestigious National Medal of Arts by President Clinton. Close is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, has served on the board of many arts organizations, and was recently appointed by President Obama to serve on The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
