Realism art period- Mcandrew 6

The Realist movement in French art flourished from about 1840 until the late nineteenth century, and sought to convey a truthful and objective vision of contemporary life. Realism emerged in the aftermath of the Revolution of 1848 that overturned the monarchy of Louis-Philippe and developed during the period of the Second Empire under Napoleon III. As French society fought for democratic reform, the Realists democratized art by depicting modern subjects drawn from the everyday lives of the working class. Rejecting the idealized classicism of academic art and the exotic themes of Romanticism, Realism was based on direct observation of the modern world. Realists often recorded, in gritty detail, the present day existence of humble people. Two realism artists are Gustave Courbet and Thomas Eakins.

The first piece by Courbet is a painting of an every day woman, I love the amount of detail in this photo and it is commendable that he captures the direct emotion, and he doesn't change what is happening.
The second piece by Courbet is an amazing landscape painting. I love the contrast in colors and how the artist is able to make me feel the gloom, in a sense, of this snapshot.
The third piece by Courbet is an amazing landscape. I believe this is my favorite piece by this author. It is captivating and so vividly detailed and "real".
The last piece by Courbet is another amazing piece. The amount of little details in each painting is amazing. I feel he emphasizes shadows and colors and uses them impeccably.
The first pieceby Eakins is flawless. I am captivated by this piece of work and I love everything about it. The setting, color, expression, I am almost unable to describe its beauty.
The second piece by Eakins is another amazing piece. I can visibly depict countless things =I enjoy about this piece as well. It puts the "real" in realism.
The third piece by Eakins is slightly different than the others but nonetheless great. This painting almost looks like a photo. I love how he captures the murky waters.
The last piece by Eakins is a fantastic portrait. I love the smirk on the man's face. I also love how the artist is able to correctly proportion the man's body.
