Howard Kanovitz, (1929-2009) whose 50-year career ranged from abstract expressionism* to computer imaging, was at the forefront of the art movement known as photorealism*. His 1966 landmark Jewish Museum solo exhibition launched this new genre of photo-based painting. Though dubbed by Barbara Rose "the grandfather of photorealism" Kanovitz did work that transcended that classification in "realistic paintings for which the concept of realism is too narrow." (1)
