Description

Photorealism is the genre of painting based on using cameras and photographs to gather visual information and then from this creating a painting that appears to be photographic.

The Battleship TEXAS is the last dreadnought in existence in the world, a veteran of Vera Cruz (1914) and both World Wars, and is credited with the introduction and innovation of advances in gunnery, aviation and radar. Having been designed in the first decade of the 20th century, (keel laid in 1911 and completed in 1914), and having seen action in some of the most intense and critical campaigns of WWII, she is an important piece of our naval and maritime history.

Photo-Realist painter Thomas Blackwell, born in 1938, started out as an abstract painter influenced by the Pop Art movement.

He moved on to a primary interest in painting large-scale works featuring the gleaming surfaces of machinery, metal and glass, mainly in airplanes and motorcycles, but later in urban store fronts and windows. He used photographs from magazines as the source of his subject matter, as well as taking his own photos.

Blackwell is best known for his depictions of the urbanscape and the various reflections of windows.
