(1929 - 2009)
Howard Earl Kanovitz was active/lived in New York, Massachusetts. Howard Kanovitz is known for photo real figure, other modernist painting.
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)
The art historian Sam Hunter described how Kanovitz's "meticulous airbrush technique and exactness of vision produce an atmosphere of doubt rather than certitude and posed questions of meaning which challenge the very nature of the artistic experience." (2)
