About the Event

About the Artform

Realism is an art style that focuses on representing the subject truthfully, without adding fictitious elements or features. The Realist Movement began in France, in the 1850s, when Realist painters rejected the idea of Romanticism, which was widely prevalent in art and literature back then.

The movement picked up when artists like Gustave Courbet and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot used common labourers and their everyday surroundings. Realism is a vast concept and has its presence in various fields like literature, cinema and theatre.
