A previous reviewer stated that: "...there is very little background infomation provided and by starting at 1980 the movements start is completly neglected..." This is no careless omission, the start of the movement (1969 - 1979) is covered in 'Photorealism'.
As I understand, 'Photorealism since 1990' is also to be produced.

I love this book, as well as Meisel's other two Photorealism books. Soon I'll buy his newest one, but I had to buy the first three used. I go through them over and over. It's the painting genre that speaks to me, and always fills me with joy.

The book Photorealism since 1980 is a great account of the early years of the photorealist movement and includes examples of the early American pioneers of the genre. A must have book if you are a big fan of photorealism/hyperrealism paintings.

Format: Hardcover
this book is a very good resource for the novice or student new to the subject of photorealism, it provides a large coolection of reproductions from an influential and representative proportion of the photorealist comunity, it does however fall down on the debate about photorealism and its role in contempory art circles, for example for the 20 or so artists featured there is very little background infomation provided and by starting at 1980 the movements start is completly neglected with no reference to chuck Closes early works or indeed the heavily influential geheart richter, the book is a brilliant resource for those interested in the actual pictues but provides less on the inteleqtual debate, this is however no bad thing. as often books of this sort can wonder off into over indulgent protention about a none defined field.
