Notes:
[1] "Keith" was one of Close's personal paintings, as it was his favorite - the only one of his early black and white paintings that he kept for himself at a time when all of his other black and white paintings were in museum collections [letter from Chuck Close to the Museum dated October 29, 1997, SLAM document files].
