Though it began as a literary concept, Symbolism was soon identified with the artwork of a younger generation of painters who were similarly rejecting the conventions of Naturalism. Symbolist painters believed that art should reflect an emotion or idea rather than represent the natural world in the objective, quasi-scientific manner embodied by Realism and Impressionism. Returning to the personal expressivity advocated by the Romantics earlier in the nineteenth century, they felt that the symbolic value or meaning of a work of art stemmed from the re-creation of emotional experiences in the viewer through color, line, and composition.
Richard Estes viene considerato uno dei fondatori del movimento fotorealista internazionale della fine degli anni '80, egli dipinge soprattutto paesaggi urbani caratterizzati da molti dettagli. Il cosiddetto "fotografo a matita" Paul Cadden , il disegnatore che si diletta a riprodurre a mano fotografie in primo piano con un grado di dettaglio incredibile. Dalle innumerevoli rughe sul volto di una donna, dalle goccioline d'acqua fino allo sbuffo di fumo che fuoriesce da una sigaretta, tutto nei ritratti di Cadden appare assolutamente reale; al punto che le differenze tra il quadro e la fotografia sono impercettibili. Chuck Close , per esempio, nei suoi ritratti si serve intenzionalmente di fotografie sfocate oppure costruisce i volti sulla tela accostando tante piccole tessere di colore come se creasse un mosaico: in questo modo riesce a rappresentare l'impressione di un volto anche senza riprodurne esattamente la sembianza fisica.
