    Realism is an approach to art in which subjects are depicted in as straightforward a manner as possible, without idealizing them and without following rules of formal artistic theory.

    The earliest Realist work began to appear in the 18th century, in a reaction to the excesses of Romanticism and Neoclassicism. This is evident in John Singleton Copley's paintings, and some of the works of Goya. But the great Realist era was the middle of the 19th century, as artists became disillusioned with the artifice of the Salons and the influence of the Academies.

    Realism came closest to being an organized movement in France, inspiring artists such as Camille Corot, Jean-Francois Millet and the Barbizon School of landscape painters.

    Besides Copley, American Realists included the painters Thomas Eakins, and Henry Ossawa Tanner, both of whom studied in France.

    Realism as well as idealized realism was done by the Ancient Greek and Roman artists but it disappeared during later times to reemerge in the Renaissance. In modern times Realism comes and goes as part of the fads and fashions of the art world. Photo Realism was the last big movement in Realism involving painters like Chuck Close. and others. There seems little point to realism after the invention of photography unless it can produce something that a photo can''t and that something might be the individuality of the artist as seen in his style of line and brush stroke because a photograph can use design and color and even texture but not in the same way paint can. Paint the ridges of the paint which are three dimensional. Now they have printers that can print 3 dimensional objects which might 9introduce a whole new way of doing things if this technology gets in the hands of artist and though I haven't seen any results yet I am sure it probably is already.

    It relies upon what variety of abstraction you opt to do. With abstraction the subject count is extra open to twiddling with the paint language than realism. it is likewise a miles extra poetic way of seeing the international. So the concepts which you variety would be pondered in the way you paint that language and the relationships of what you paint, as an occasion: brush strokes, shape, area, line etc. There are all styles of opportunities. ranging from a private place, journey or way of seeing is many times the ultimate. look into artists who're portray abstractly today and examine their very own words what their artwork ability to them. it is going to help you notice how they have been given began too: David Reed Jonathon Lasker Thomas Nozkowski Terry Winters Lydia Dona Julie Mehretu Monique Prieto Steve Roden Jane Callister Ami Sillman Stony: i consider you on realism being a deathpit.
