"Helene's Florist" by Richard Estes. 1971, oil on canvas. Estes used a photograph of Helene’s Florist Shop (at the time located on Columbus Avenue at 72nd St, NYC) as his source material for this painting. However, much as it may resemble a photo, the painting has qualities not found in photography. No traditional film camera can achieve the simultaneous depth of field necessary to give such complete clarity at both close and far range.
