Ellen Altfest: Painting Close-Up
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.
