About the Item

Chuck Close Uniquely Signed, dedicated and inscribed vintage card, 1988 Thick card Boldly signed, dated, dedicated and inscribed in black ink on the front 8 2/5 × 5 7/10 inches Unframed This postcard is an image of the original gigantic painting by Close of the renowned art writer Linda Rosenkrantz Finch. who married writer Christopher Finch in 1973, and they went on to publish books together. Large card on cardstock dedicated "For Dana/Best wishes/Chuck Close 1988". This work is from the Estate and private autograph collection of Cordelia Platt. Highly regarded in the autograph industry, Cordelia was the president of the UACC (United Autograph Collectors Club) and a well known dealer for many years. She was official authenticator of Marilyn Monroe. This piece had been in Ms. Platt's private collection for 20 years before it was sold. Chuck Close, a contemporary master of portraiture, was born with a rare neurological disorder called prosopagnosia, which leaves him unable to recognize faces—including his own. “Everything I do is driven by my learning disabilities,” Close once said. “I’m sure I was driven to paint portraits to commit images to memory, because once I flatten them out and scan them I remember them much better.” Whether as tapestries, photographs, or larger-than-life oil paintings, Close’s portraits often feature himself or his inner circle of friends, including the artists Richard Serra, Alex Katz, Diane von Furstenberg, Cindy Sherman, and Cecily Brown. Notable exceptions include his portraits of celebrities Brad Pitt and Kate Moss, as well as former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Close's John (1971-72), an early photorealistic painting of his friend John Roy, set the artist’s auction record at $4.8 million.
