Faces is the last and largest work of the artist, completed just days before his death in 1995. The canvas is covered with 70 portraits of people the artist knew over his lifetime, including a self-portrait (wearing a cowboy hat) located centrally in the lower half of the painting. Faces is a masterfully executed twist on traditional portraiture - a portrait of the artist through the portraits of those he knew.
