WHAT OWNERS ARE SAYING
I loved the fact that they let me try them at my house before deciding which was ones to buy. These are really great people to work with.Michael Harmin
I couldn’t decide which two to get. I spoke to Cathy at Photorealism. She suggested she would send me the four I liked, let me put them up in my rec room, and then send back the two I didn’t want. Well once I saw them in the house, I couldn’t send any back and I bought all four: Superchip, Bank Pays You Dividend, Jumble and Honey Fly. Love them all! Thank you Cathy!William Stewart
My husband loves The Three Stooges and when I saw Doug Bloodworth’s Three Stooges, I knew I had my Xmas gift picked out. But I had no idea of the response I would get from my husband. He started twirling around like Curly and screaming Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk and he hasn’t stopped since. Greatest gift I have ever given.Joan Hencks
I have never met such a trustworthy art dealer. They let me try the pieces in my house before I bought them. Wow! The pieces look amazing. Thank you Cathy.Robert Sturm
I wanted to give these pieces out as gifts to my business colleagues. Photorealism worked with me on a quantity price and I ended up getting eighteen of them. In all my years of giving business gifts, I have never ever seen such happy recipients of any gifts.Marcus McLane

What is Photorealism?
Photorealism is a genre of art in which a painting is so skillfully done that from ten or twenty feet away, the viewer assumes that they are seeing a photograph. Only when one stands a few inches from the artwork does one realize that it is a painting, not a photograph.
There’s something about photorealism. You walk into a room and see a Richard Estes street scene or a Roberto Bernardi candy bowl and you say, “Beautiful photo”. But as you get closer to the piece, you realize that it’s actually an oil painting and you exclaim “Wow! I cannot believe it. Look at the shadows. Look at the exhaust coming out of the car. Look at the depth of field. It’s absolutely amazing”.
One never tires of having these in one’s home. These pieces provide enjoyment for years.
Seeing these pieces on a computer screen, it is difficult to imagine how they would look in one’s home. Therefore, we have a try-it-at-home service. Please contact us to arrange.
