Istvan Sandorfi Realistic Paintings

A selection of beautiful realistic paintings by the Hungarian hyperrealist painter István Sándorfi (1948-2007).

For about fifteen years he painted a series of large-scale self-portraits, aggressive and theatrical in character, which gave him an ambiguous reputation with dealers and the public. It was written that he ‘painted like an assassin’. His paintings began to know real success only from 1988 onwards, when the artist abandoned his disturbing images and began to concentrate and further elaborate on his technique, which is still evolving.
