Art DictionaryDictionary of Art Terms
Art which is an accurate depiction of nature. This is a term that is used in the most general sense. The term originated in the mid nineteenth-century, in France, when the painter Gustave Courbet said that since he had never seen an angel he could certainly never paint one. He devoted his life to painting the life around him. Realism was a big part of the art world until the 1950's when it was almost eliminated from critical consideration. It resurfaced in the 1960's with Pop art and the new realism. Today, realism is still a big part of the art world and is argued all the time as to its merits. Sometimes there is a very fine line between realism in hight art and hack art.
Art DictionaryA Brush With Greatness Glossary
The realistic representation of people, places and/or things in a work of art. Realism is sometimes considered synonymous with naturalism. The realist school was a mid-nineteenth century style of art in which artists discarded earlier schools of thought to paint familiar scenes and events as they actually looked. Ugly or commonplace subjects were often depicted, with aims at a sociopolitical or moral message. Some artists who use realism are Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Edouard Manet, Gustave Courbet and Jean-François Millet.
