Photorealism 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting

38.00

They devote themselves to the veneer of modern everyday life, the mirrored world of surfaces. Reflective shop windows, limousines with shiny chrome, garishly colored plastic kitsch, and urban scenes have been the favorite subjects of the Photorealists for fifty years. In a complicated work process, the artists employ technical aids to create painted illusions: they photograph their source materials, transfer them with the aid of slide projectors or scans, and then capture them precisely with the brush or spray gun on canvas. This publication presents the impressive works of art by leading figures in this movement, starting with sixties artists such as Richard Estes, Chuck Close, and Don Eddy and moving through three generations of artists to the hyper-realistic visual experiences of contemporary digital artists such as Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and Robert Neffson.
