Everyday scenes and work

275 Discovered works of art
The style of the painting of everyday scenes is also referred to as genre painting or moral portraits, whose origin can be found already in ancient times - on vases and frescoes from Pompeii.

Since then, typical scenes and actions from the world of work and life can be found in all periods of painting and give interesting insights into social conditions and living together in the respective time. As cultural historical testimonies of the life and everyday life of people in their typical environment, the works of art allow the viewer to immerse themselves in the worlds of bygone times and to discover this world of life in many small details.
In addition to the documentary portrayal of everyday life, however, often found in many snapshots a deeper statement hidden, which has narrative character in their respective visual language. Moral interpretations of the respective way of life can be found here as well as figurative proverbs and plays. The doctrinally moralizing style of everyday scenes testifies to the cultural characteristics of the time and provides interesting information about social norms and habits of the milieus.

Already in the 16th century, old masters created the typical peasant and family scenes in which the misdemeanors of the lower classes - such as drunkenness or quarrels - were often depicted, especially in negative examples. In later epochs, these modes of representation then gave way to scenes of upper-class citizens, revealing their deeper meaning only to the attentive and knowing observer.
