Ralph Goings Paintings

Ralph Goings (1928-2016) was an American artist who is most well known for his Photorealist paintings of diners, gas stations, coffee shops, pick up trucks and other distinctly American scenery. His mediums of choice were watercolors and oils. Goings is considered to be a part of the original group of Photorealist painters who emerged during the 1960s and 1970s. Photorealist painters like Goings received criticism for heavily referencing photography within their works, however, Goings didn’t let that stop him. He went on to become a very prominent painter of the Photorealist Movement and his works have been exhibited all over the world.
