A prominent artist ventured behind locked doors to portray three "forgotten" social classes: the elderly, the mentally retarded, and the criminal. Alan E. Cober encountered his subjects in retirement homes as well as such notorious institutions as Willowbrook State School and Sing Sing Correctional Facility. His 92 expressive portraits of social outsiders recall the traditions of Albrecht Durer and George Grosz.
