Richard Estes' realism

October 21, 2014
Sims, Patterson, author.
xi, 177 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 25 x 29 cm
Catalog of an exhibition held at the Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine, May 22-September 7, 2014, and at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., October 10, 2014-February 8, 2015.
Richard Estes' realism / Patterson Sims -- Into the deep / Jessica May -- Plates -- A chronology of Richard Estes' life and career / Helen Ferrulli.
Richard Estes (b. 1932) is one of the most celebrated adopters of photorealism; his paintings are characterized by painstaking detail that mimics the clarity and accuracy of photographs. Estes' most famous canvases from the 1970s depict New York's urban landscape, and his manner of painting reflections in a multitude of metal and glass surfaces displays astounding technical skill. In his subsequent career, Estes has continued to demonstrate his superlative ability to show complex plays of light and shadow in Maine seascapes, views of Venetian lagoons, and night time street scenes. Accompanying Estes' first solo exhibition of paintings in the United States in over two decades, 'Richard Estes' Realism' surveys fifty years of his work and places him within the historical narrative of realist painting. The authors explore the ongoing modernist dialogue between camera and canvas, and discuss the situation of Estes' work at the crossroads of painting and photography. Over fifty full-page plates showcase the amazing precision of Estes' paintings, and a thorough chronology and bibliography provide an enlightening account of his life. This handsome book offers a lavish presentation of Estes' spellbinding body of work that attests to his enduring artistic impact.

Aero' celebrates 20 years of the famed Aero design studio with an intimate look at its founder Thomas O'Brien's design philosophy. From O'Brien's vivid reminiscences about his early days in art school in Manhattan to the opening and development of his paired studio and store, 'Aero' covers the history and aesthetic of this Soho, New York, landmark. Aero is where Thomas O'Brien formulated the "warm modern" look that first brought him to prominence, though his style is truly about finding modern and classic forms in many things: downtown's industrial and artistic loft culture, the luxurious elegance of the prewar city uptown, and the essential simplicity of American country antiques and rural living. Showcasing never-before-seen images of the store through the years, O'Brien's first homes, Soho lofts, and Aero's signature refurbished vintage furniture, this book gives readers access to the archives of a working design studio and store.
