In this gallery I have selected a few paintings that were made specifically for the impressionism or realism art category. I will be comparing and contrasting each type of painting. To be more specific, each painting is a landscape and each of these were made between the years 1850-early 1900s. The first 4 paintings are impressionism, which means the artist painted their feeling and visual impression, rather than focusing on realistic details. The last four paintings in this gallery are realism, meaning the opposite of impressionism, these artists took subjects from the world around them and intended to make them lifelike.
