Robert Cottingham – part 3

Robert Cottingham (born 1935 Brooklyn, NY) is of a generation of 20th century painters, who in finding themselves confronted with the 19th century rival of painting, photography, successfully assimilated photography into their work. This movement in art became known as Photo Realism. It developed quietly during the early 1960's and emerged as the predominant style in the 'Documenta 5' 1972 in Kassel, Germany, an international exhibition that is one of the most important in the world. Malcom Morley, Robert Cottingham, Robert Bechtle, John Clemente Clark, Richard McClean, Ralph Goings and John Kacere are among the main artists to adopt this international style.
