Lot Essay

"Estes...invented a way to paint what appears to be two entirely different points of focus--the close-up and the distant panorama--as part of one canvas. Neither the eye nor the camera can capture images in this way, but Estes convinces us that it can be done" Louis K. Meisel
(L. Meisel, Photorealism Since 1980, New York, 1993, p. 179).
