Monday Morning Museum: Contemporary Realism

Contemporary Realism – In America emerging in the late 1960s/early 1970s
Contemporary realism is a term used in its narrowest sense to denote an North American style of painting which came into existence c. 1960s and early 1970s. Artists such as Philip Pearlstein, Ken Danby, Sarah Webb (painter) and Neil Wellilver are in the movement. The movement is generally depicted in figurative art works created in a natural yet highly objective style, without many interpretations of former movements. – Wikipedia.org

In addition to William Bailey (see art example below), Neil Gavin Welliver and Philip Pearlstein are also immersed in Contemporary Realism.
