Starting with a small photograph that he took himself, Chuck Close made a very large painting of his friend Philip Glass, who is a well-known composer. First, Close drew a grid over the photograph, dividing it into small squares. Next, he painted a much larger copy of each square of the grid onto a big canvas to make this artwork.
