Realism Art

Realism art is a movement that began in France around the 1850s. Realist rejected the over exaggerated emotionalism of the romantic movement. This type of art depicts a subject/topic as realistic as possible without any extra exaggerations. Realists depict already existing things the way they are or can be in reality. This era was strongly dominated by Jean Millet. He was an inspiration to many renowned people like Van Gogh and mark twain.
