History Painting and the Problem with Art Ed by R. Zeller

Here’s an interesting article that takes a look at the growth of “new realism.” At the very least, it’s nice to see someone else acknowledging the equivocation at play regarding artists that define themselves as “Classical Realists.”

“I make the argument in my book that the Classical Realists are in dire need of a new name and a new focus. The phrase Classical Realism itself is oxymoronic. The Greek Classical has absolutely nothing in common with true French Realism.” -Robert Zeller
