Photorealism is a style of painting or drawing. The picture is done with a lot of detail to make it look exactly like a photograph. The subjects pictured were often boring, without any special interest. Photorealism developed as an art style in the 1960's and 1970's. Two famous photorealist artists are Richard Estes and Chuck Close.
