Just acquiring a new way of looking can turn your perception of life. It happened in the case of these painters of Impressionism and Realism schools. People, objects, and situations were depicted exactly as they were with their imperfections in somber fashion rather than creating a rendition of idealized subjects. The comparison to the beauty and beast is unavoidable here! The accent on beauty gave way to realism as it is rather than glorifying the subject.
Evolution of Impressionism
Impressionism is like reading between the lines and inferring something…
The technological advances of the industrial revolution paved the way for new ideas that were emerging from the earlier school of thought. Modern art makes it easy for the Artists to represent their novelty in the expression about their impression of life in a more open and innovative way. Enter modern art!
