The Tampa Museum of Art is currently presenting an incredible range of hyperrealist paintings made over the last half-century during a must-see exhibition. However, it’s only up for a few more weeks!
On view through October 22 at the Tampa Museum of Art, “50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting” presents the work of some 30 artists known for their hyperrealistic 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,” the museum writes. “This exhibition features three generations of photorealist painters, including John Baeder, Robert Bechtle, Chuck Close, Richard Estes, Audry Flack, Ralph Goings, Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and others.”
