Summary

Summary

Superrealism is the first important movement of the 20th century with a return to realism. It is an intensely American phenomenon which has received tremendous popular attention. The level of detail makes the art appear like photographs & the subjects often mundane. Christine Lindey compares & contrasts the two forms & traces the origin of the style as well as its European variants. The book features a wealth of color & B&W reproductions, some in multiple stages of the work.
