“Photorealism: 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting” traces the evolution of Photorealism from 1960 to today. This artistic term was coined by art dealer and author Louis K. Meisel in the late 1960s to describe large-scale paintings created to look photographic. The show features three generations of painters, including John Baeder, Robert Bechtle, Chuck Close, Richard Estes, Audry Flack, Ralph Goings, Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence and others. Goings’s painting Collins Diner, from the Tampa Museum of Art permanent collection, is among the most important artworks in the exhibition, which was organized by Das Institut für Kulturaustausch in Tübingen, Germany.
