Ellen Altfest: Painting Close-Up

Ellen Altfest: Painting Close-Up


Published on the occasion of the exhibition Ellen Altfest at MK Gallery (3 April - 31 May 2015). 



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