PHOTOREALISM IN THE DIGITAL AGE. Louis K. Meisel. Abrams, New York, 2013. 320 pp. with 875 ills. (835 col.) and 50 reference ills. (44 col.). 34 x 26 cm. LC 2013-935975 ISBN 9781419708282 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: This luxurious volume -- the fourth in a series by Louis K. Meisel -- is a comprehensive documentation of 21st-century Photorealism, one of the most popular art movements since the late 1960s. Photorealists work painstakingly from photographs to create startlingly realistic paintings, and where they once used film for gathering information, they now rely on digital technology, which has vastly expanded the amount of detail that can be captured. In these visual marvels they bring insights to vernacular subjects -- cars, cityscapes, portraits -- and make the commonplace uncommon. Illustrating the book with more than 850 works created since 2000, Meisel covers every major Photorealist still active (including Ralph Goings, Richard Estes, Tom Blackwell, Richard McLean, and John Salt) as well as remarkable newcomers. For the first time he also includes Verist sculptors such as John De Andrea and Duane Hanson.
