These Bertrand Meniel paintings are highly realistic, reminiscent more so of photographic images than of something produced by way of a canvas.

Meniel is considered to be one of the forerunners of the photorealism niche. Given the sheer accuracy of his work, it is no wonder that he has acquired such a title.

Madrid is currently set to feature 50 of Meniel's pieces. Titled The Hyperrealism 1967-2012, it will enable viewers to comprehend the way in which the artist progressed over the years. Those who are privy to the production will also get to take in his knack for shadows and the many depictions of lighting via his images of lamp posts and corporate signs.
