Richard Estes is internationally known as one of the founders of hyperrealism and one of the key figures of contemporary American painting. Born in Kewanee, Illinois, on May 4, 1932, he is a poet of the American metropolis, a subtle investigator into the evolution of the urban landscape—a narrative that can easily be followed in his work (included are his paintings of Venice, Florence, Barcelona, Cordova, and Hiroshima). He also explores landscapes where an uncontaminated nature seems to flex its muscles defiantly (the imposing Machu Picchu or the luminous vibrations of the sea seen from a ferry off the coast of Maine). This dual-language volume—English and Spanish—includes six essays by leading hyperrealism specialists: Guillermo Solana, Fred Licht, John Arthur, Raffaele Crovi, Nico Rengo, and John Updike.
Sandro Parmiggiani is an art historian and critic. He is Curator of the Exhibitions Department at the Palazzo Magnani, Reggio Emilia.
