Realism

91 Discovered artists
Realism is a current in the history of art that arose in the middle of the 19th century. It mainly contains two characteristic features. Thus the works of the epoch represent, on the one hand, a factual depiction of people as well as scenarios and, on the other hand, a political or societal critique. The goal of the artists of this style was, therefore, to depict people and their social relations as realistically as possible. Here, realism is bound up with directions such as romance and classicism.

A significant representative of realism was the French painter Gustave Courbet, who lived between 1819 and 1877. Especially his large-format oil painting "A Funeral in Ornans" can be attributed to the art direction. It was presented to the public for the first time in 1850 as part of the Paris Salon, a regular art exhibition in the city. Nowadays the work in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris depends.

In realism various undercurrents have developed over the course of time, for example American Realism in the USA. The painter Edward Hopper is one of the most important representatives of this style, which flourished in the 1920s and 1930s. In his paintings, the artist focused on the loneliness of modern man in urban places such as a bar in the painting "Nighthawks" or a gas station in the portrait "Gas".
