Every age projects its own image in the arts. The artistic period of Realism took place in the 19th century from around 1825-1880. This age in the arts was characterized by its very unique elements, generally not seen in previous art periods. Artists from this time generally liked to focus on the life of peasants in the way it truly was. There were not many cute faced urban workers, making these pieces as realistic as possible, thus getting its name, Realism. These scenes are also centered around the facts of the situation, not the feeling which is portrayed. Realism art also tends to keep its setting in the country side, which was were the majority of peasants got through their daily life.
