The Photorealism art movement which is also called Superrealism appeared in USA in the end of 1960s. The top places of this style development were California and New York. The artists were inspired by photography and created fine art works that depicted not nature but human-made objects with microscopic accuracy.

Main ideas of an art style

Critics tend to consider Pop Art as a catalyst of Photorealism raise. These two styles have one idea in common: both of them wanted to break the rules of artwork object’s importance and depicted objects from everyday life. At the very beginning the style faced harsh reactions from some critics who believed that Photorealism is a betrayal of a Modernism as it came back to idea of technical perfection while the main goal of art was thought to express feelings rather than artist’s skills.

Photorealism was first of all a technical challenge for artists who needed to depict difficult objects like glass, reflections or water as real as possible. Most of artists worked with high resolution photos of objects which they projected onto canvases and than used an airbrush to made an image look realistic.
