The photorealist movement: Richard Estes..

Richard Estes is considered to be the founder of the hyperrealist movement. His highly detailed paintings originate from multiply sourced photographs from around the bustling scene of New York.He often incorporates reflective surfaces, such as shop windows and shiny cars, yielding mirrored imagery that serves to enhance what the naked eye is capable of perceiving.

I have featured Estes’ work and quotes within my dissertation emphasizing his importance in the growth and advance of the hyperrealist style.
