Product Overview

Realism and thus Exactitude has played an important role in art history ever since the discovery of perspective. Here, John Russell Taylor charts the artist's endeavour to re-create the smallest detail, dating back to a time centuries before the invention of photography to the present day.
This book has been published to complement a series of shows called Exactitude at the Plus One Gallery in London of contemporary artists working in a figurative, hyperrealist style. The diversity of such works, whether still lifes, extreme close-ups, large-scale cityscapes, landscapes or commercial packaging is revealed here. The artists included are, among others, Pedro Campos, Clive Head, Ben Johnson, David Ligare, Cynthia Poole, John Salt, Cesar Santander, Ben Schonzeit and Tjalf Sparnaay, who come from all around the world, but are united here by their meticulous approach to their work, whether depicting, among many different subjects, American diners, book spines, portraits or car engines.
This volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in art in the 21st century.
