Photorealism is the world’s largest fine art dealership focusing solely on photorealistic paintings. We are the exclusive wholesale dealer and distributor for many of the world’s top photorealist painters, including Doug Bloodworth, Jim Jackson, Ralph Stearns, and Mark Schiff , whose works can be seen at important galleries around the world. Our mission is simple, to provide art collectors with the finest photorealistic works that steadily appreciate in value. Photorealism has become the world’s go to authority on photorealistic paintings.
There’s something about photorealism. Everyone has a story about the first time they approached a Duane Hanson security guard at Van de Weghe and asked him where the rest rooms are. It’s an experience one never forgets.
You walk into a room and see a Bloodworth Monopoly or Jackson Butterfinger 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 “Holy moly: I cannot believe it. Look at the shadows. Look at the green tint under the car. Look at the depth of field. It’s absolutely amazing”.
In the New York Times piece, Doug painted every letter in the font of the New York Times. In the Wall Street Journal piece, he painted every letter in the font of the Wall Street Journal. Look at the condensation on the Red Bull can. One cannot appreciate this on a computer screen. Visit a gallery to see these pieces with your own eyes; in real life, they are absolutely incredible.
One never tires of having these in one’s home. These pieces provide enjoyment for years. That’s why one sees so few resales of these paintings. We are always asking collectors if they would like to sell one or more of the pieces that they previously purchased from us, and the answer is always no.
