Gerald Cantor, the World Trade Center of late, and the DeBeers Museum to name just a few. Commissioned by many prominent people and leaders of industry, his one man exhibitions in New York, London, San Francisco and Paris exposed his magnificent detailed works to rave reviews. Raymond A. Whyte is known as a master of Trompe L'oeil, still life and portraits. Many of his works have a haunting dimension of eternity. His colors trap a mixture of realism and mysticism. "His technique is so arresting, it almost becomes an end in itself, and yet the total effect is something beyond brilliant craftsmanship and closer to magical", New York art critic Harold Callen.
