NOTE:

In his photorealistic portraiture, Hubert de Lartigue fuses the visual languages of fashion photography and Neoclassicism, and yet subverts their shared, glossy idealization of the female nude by depicting real women with all of their imperfections. Using a paintbrush and airbrush, he builds up coats of acrylic, then sands his works until brushstroke and other painterly gestures are practically invisible, rendering his surface almost as smooth as a photograph.
