Following is a little art history leading up to the time period we are covering this week.

Realism in painting of the nineteenth century sought to make an objective and unprejudiced record of the customs, ideas, and appearances of contemporary society. By selectively choosing details, realism in painting sought to go beyond the obvious to a deeper sense of reality. This was done through spontaneity, harmonious colors, and subjects from everyday life, and faithfulness to observed lighting and atmospheric effects.

The Romantic style in painting has an emotional appeal. Its subjects tend toward the picturesque, including nature, Gothic images, and often the macabre. In seeking to break the geometrical principles of classical composition, Romantic compositions move toward fragmentation of images, with the intention of dramatizing, personalizing, and escaping into imagination. Such painting strives to subordinate formal content to expressive intent, and to express an intense introversion. As the writer Zola maintained, art in the Romantic style is “part of the universe as seen through a temperament.”

Class, who is an artist that represents the nineteenth century? Is their work an example of Realism or Romanticism?
