Realist Landscape Photography

REALIST STYLE

Realist art attempts to portray its subject matter without artifice. Similar to naturalism, authentic realist paintings and prints see an integration of true-to-life colors, meticulous detail and linear perspectives for accurate portrayals of the world. 

Work that involves illusionistic techniques of realism dates back to the classical world, such as the deceptive trompe l’oeil used since ancient Greece. Art like this became especially popular in the 17th century when Dutch artists like Evert Collier painted objects that appeared real enough to touch. Realism as an artistic movement, however, usually refers to 19th-century French realist artists such as Honoré Daumier exploring social and political issues in biting lithographic prints, while the likes of Gustave Courbet and Jean-François Millet painting people — particularly the working class — with all their imperfections, navigating everyday urban life. This was a response to the dominant academic art tradition that favored grand paintings of myth and history. 

By the turn of the 20th century, European artists, such as the Pre-Raphaelites, were experimenting with nearly photographic realism in their work, as seen in the attention to every botanical attribute of the flowers surrounding the drowned Ophelia painted by English artist John Everett Millais.

Although abstraction was the guiding style of 20th-century art, the realism trend in American modern art endured in Edward Hopper, Andrew Wyeth and other artists’ depictions of the complexities of the human experience. In the late 1960s, Photorealism emerged with artists like Chuck Close and Richard Estes giving their paintings the precision of a frame of film.

Contemporary artists such as Jordan Casteel, LaToya Ruby Frazier and Aliza Nisenbaum are now using the unvarnished realist approach for honest representations of people and their worlds. Alongside traditional mediums, technology such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence and immersive installations are helping artists create new sensations of realism in art.

Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc, Waterskiing in Cap d'Antibes, France
Located in Los Angeles, CA
Immerse yourself in the essence of 1960s Riviera luxury with Slim Aarons' vibrant photograph, Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc. This striking image, a token of nautical elegance, showcases a series of exquisite red vintage boats, ready to glide through the waters of the French Riviera. Captured in the summer of 1969, this photograph is a symphony of color and activity, featuring the opulent lifestyle at the iconic Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc. The rich wooden finish of the vintage boats, named Sirocco, Eleven-Eleven, and Sunny III, gleams under the Mediterranean sun, reflecting a time when leisure was an art form perfected through timeless style. In the foreground, we see the boats moored gracefully by the dock, their polished brass fittings and vibrant red hulls drawing the eye with an irresistible allure. The scene is alive with movement; a waterskier cuts a swathe through the azure blue, trailed by a boat that slices through the calm sea, creating a dynamic contrast of stillness and speed. This Slim Aarons photograph not only captures the visual splendor of the era but also embodies the spirit of the French Riviera's high life - a life of leisure, luxury, and endless summer days spent on the water. Perfect for collectors looking to infuse their space with the timeless chic of the Côte d'Azur.
