In the late 1960s, a fascinating art movement emerged in America: Photorealism. Young artists rebelled against the prevailing fashion for abstract and conceptual art. They depicted everyday objects and scenes in the minutest detail, usually working in extremely large formats. Using photographs as the source for their enormous canvases, they were among the first artists to explore the impact of visual culture as the subject of their works. Paintings of urban scenes reflected in shop windows, close-ups of glistening cars, neon signs and typically American interiors: these and many more intriguing works can be admired in a major exhibition on Photorealism, opening in February 2024.
