The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism




Art Fortune | Photorealism


Photorealism is the process in which artists make a painting from a photograph by mimicking the ultra-realist depiction of the subject through the reproduction of extreme detail. The result was often undecipherable from actual photographs. The Photorealist movement began in the United States and spread to Europe during the 1960’s. The style was a product of Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, and Minimalism. The process of making a photorealist work had many steps and sometimes included making photographic slide transfers onto the canvas. Chuck Close was a pioneer of Photorealist painting; he would use large-scale paintings to do portraits using other mediums besides paint such as stamps, fingerprints, thread, and paper. Other Photorealist painters are Don Eddy, Charles Bell, and Tom Blackwell.
