In this Movemen t

Realist paintiners and sculptuers are involving thorough reproduction of details. In painting the results were nearly photographic-- in fact made from photographs (although painters had been working from photographs since the early days of photography).

Although its center was in theUnited States, the Photo-Realism

movement was also strong inEurope from the late 1960s into the 1970s, where his type of illusionism is known principally as superrealism.

Among the most highly regarded American photorealist painters are Richard Estes (1932-), Chuck Close (1940-), Audrey Flack (1931-), Charles Bell (1935-1995), and Ralph Goings (1928-).
