Beautiful Female Portraits By Contemporary Painters is an introduction to the work of numerous Japanese artists working in the field today specializing in extremely life-like, photo-realistic paintings. Traditional media, primarily oil paint is used.
Many of these paintings are so skilfully executed that at first glance they can be easily passed off as photographs – only upon closer scrutiny can the brushstrokes be seen.
While the artists’ stunning ability to re-create photo-reality through keen observation is a testament to their technical skills, it is also the added element of “painterlyness” and sheer artistry of these paintings that make them highly appealing and aesthetically pleasing.
There is also a small section near the end of the book that touches on Nihonga ( traditional Japanese painting ), like the beautiful work of Ikenaga Yasunari (above). Read his the review for his art book One Hundred Nights Of Bliss.
This is a great introduction to the spectacular art work of Japanese photo-real painters. Highly recommended.
