A master photorealist for twenty years, Richard Estes is at long last the subject of a monograph that does his work full justice. All the major Estes paintings of the past two decades are illustrated here in a generous large scale that highlights their amazing clarity and meticulous attention to detail. Particularly significant are the eight superb color illustrations reproduced on gatefold pages, which show as never before the full depth of Estes' work.
Louis K. Meisel, prominent New York art dealer, upholds in this, his latest book, the high standards set by his landmark "Photorealism" (Abrams, 1980). With painstaking care, Meisel has documented all the paintings, compiled a complete biography and bibliography of the artist, and written an informative text that traces the development of Estes' art. In a major essay, foremost art critic and curator John Perreault offers a fresh and frank analysis of Estes' place in the realist family. And throughout -from the early studies of reflective surfaces to the recent dazzling panoramic cityscapes- Este's paintings illuminate the insights given in the text.
For every contemporary art enthusiast, Richard Estes is a cause for rejoicing -here finally is a serious, thorough, and beautiful book on a master of modern realism.
