The Candy Store

1969

Richard Estes, The Candy Store, 1969. Oil and synthetic polymer on canvas, 47 3/4 × 68 3/4 in. (121.3 × 174.6 cm). Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; purchase with funds from the Friends of the Whitney Museum of American Art  69.21
Richard Estes paints in a style known as Photo-Realism, creating highly focused images in vivid colors so that they look as sharp and detailed as photographs. He achieves this appearance in part by working from multiple photographs that he has taken. Estes does not want to copy the photographs exactly; instead, he combines different views and objects from each photograph into a single composition. Through this process, Estes can include greater detail than the camera or the human eye can see.
