Chuck Close; Realism in art and design has been inspired by photography. Once upon a time painters tried to paint as real as they could, skills slowly improved and now people spend all their lives trying to create 'perfection' that resembles life; photography.
While you may already know Chuck Close as that incredibly talented American artist who creates those huge photorealistic paintings, you may never have seen this mind-blowing piece. Called Fanny/Fingerpainting, it's a beautiful portrait of Close's wife’s late grandmother Fanny created with fingerprints!
