Photorealism: 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting

Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting traces the evolution of Photorealism from 1960 to today. The exhibition presents the work of nearly 30 artists known for detailed, hyper depictions of ordinary objects and scenes of everyday life. Art dealer and author Louis K. Meisel coined the term “photorealism” in the late 1960s to describe large-scale paintings created to look photographic. Photorealists Ralph Goings, John Baeder, and Gus Heinz captured the mundane beauty of chromed automobiles, diners, and cityscapes in their renderings of American consumer culture. Other artists, such as Chuck Close and Robert Bechtle, pioneered new approaches to portraiture. Raphaella Spence and Yigal Ozeri belong to a new generation who create photorealist works from digital media. Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting is organized by the Institut für Kulturaustausch in Tübingen, Germany.
