Bringing together a broad range of perspectives by art historians, critics and curators, Ellen Altfest: Painting Close-Up provides rare behind-the-scenes insights into the everyday processes behind her detailed paintings. The artist’s own voice is prominent within the conversations and commentaries, affording both a personal and historical view on her position in a distinctive lineage stretching from Jan van Eyck to Sylvia Sleigh, via Gustave Courbet and Edgar Degas.

With contributions by Eric Aho, Ellen Altfest, Morgan Falconer, Ridley Howard, David Humphrey, Dan Keane, Randy Kennedy, Linda Nochlin, Justin Paton, Barry Schwabsky, Sylvia Sleigh, Anthony Spira and Robert Storr.
