  • Introductory video of Hyperrealism 1967-2012

  • with Guillermo Solana
  • 26 March 2013

In this video, the Artistic Director of the Museum, explains the exhibition which offers a survey of Hyperrealism that starts with the great US masters of the first generation such as Richard Estes, John Baeder, Robert Bechtle, Tom Blackwell, Chuck Close and Robert Cottingham, continues in Europe with their influence on subsequent generations, and concludes in the present day. Hyperrealism is not a closed movement and today, more than forty years after it arose, many of the pioneering figures continue to be active while new artists deploy the photorealist technique in their creations.
