ThisBecause it's harder to do well than realism. Realism is easy. Anyone can do it.
Again this why is the none realist worth x amount boy it doesn't do it for me.
It wasn't crafted by a realist fabricator. Because it dares to experiment with color rather than represent like a piece of photo film. Maybe it's because this was a period that challenged the authorities again. Art isn't simply the ability to render. That is easy. Anyone can do it.
