Seated Child

Ask anything

  • Datrrk asked

    What happened to the chocolate bar? Didn't he used to hold one?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi, you are absolutely correct. He's always holding a nut bar that for some reason isn't included in this picture. I've asked around and they are going to see if we have another image to replace this one with. Thank you for pointing our attention to this. Best, Lisa

More information

Photo-Realism or Hyper-Realism emerged around 1965. Painters began to make pictures with a photographic level of realism. Hanson also adopted this style. His sculptures are casts of people. They are extremely lifelike and have real clothing. Hanson’s work is an ironic reflection of reality.
