Louis K. Meisel, author of several Abrams books, is a New York art dealer and the leading proponent of Photorealism - in fact, he coined the term for the movement in the late 1960s. Linda Chase's groundbreaking interviews with the first Photorealists appeared in Art in America in the early 1970s, and she has since written extensively on the movement. She divides her time between New Kingston, New York, and Naples, Florida.
