Big Self-Portrait, 1967-68.

This is an acrylic on canvas self portrait of Chuck Close by Chuck Close. His style of realistic paintings portray a wide variety of subjects including friends, family, fellow artists, and himself. This one in particular is one of his first self portraits. I chose this one because I was intrigued by his cigarette, bold black frames, mustache, and unique facial features. This portrait would pass as an actual photograph.
