1975 — After Lunch. Acrylic on Canvas. Photorealism & Pop Art styles. Patrick Caulfield (1936 – 2005). Tate Gallery, London, UK.

“[W]hat appears to be a photomural of the Château de Chillon hanging in a restaurant is depicted with high-focus realism, contrasting with the cartoon-like black-outlined imagery and fields of saturated colour of its surroundings. Caulfield deliberately makes the relationship between these varying representational methods uneasy and ambiguous, so that the picture appears more real than the everyday world around it.” (Wikipaintings)
