Lot Essay

This work is number 7 from the sold-out edition of 7.

In the introduction to Schoeller's first monograph, The New Yorker writer David Remnick remarks: 'Celebrity is all about surface and saturation...Schoeller push[es] those qualities to the limit. They give the face, the human expression, a new dimension, and that's why we keep looking at them. That's what portraits are for, what they are all about.' (Close Up, teNeues, 2005, dust jacket)
