More Info

Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting traces the evolution of Photorealism from 1960 to today. The exhibition presents the work of some 30 artists known for their hyperrealistic depictions of ordinary objects and scenes of everyday life such as American diners, chrome features on cars and motorcycles, as well as meticulous portraits. Art dealer and author Louis K. Meisel coined the term “photorealism” in the late 1960s to describe large-scale paintings created to look photographic. Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting 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. The Tampa Museum of Art is the only American venue on the international tour of Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting, organized by the Institut für Kulturaustausch in Tübingen, Germany. Ralph Goings’s painting Collins Diner, from the Tampa Museum of Art permanent collection, is among the most important artworks in the exhibition.
Admission is $15 for adults, $7.50 for seniors 65+, military and FL Educators, FREE for college students with ID and $5 for students
