And today realism is probably the most popular style, despite the fact that it has experienced many changes.

Today we will present you the most known realism artists list with their artworks and add useful information about our online platform.

Features and trends of realism

Realism was formed in the nineteenth century in a debate with Academism and Romanticism and a new dynamic world demanded a new artistic language. The main feature of works in the style of realism was an objective reflection of reality. Landscapes and still lifes with natural light, human work, scenes from everyday life, criticism of the sins of society – realism mastered different themes. True, today a nineteenth-century man would not recognise this style! For almost two centuries it had developed into several movements: Russian Peredvizhniki, Italian Verism, Communist Socialist Realism, American Contemporary Realism, Magical Realism, Hyperrealism and even Abstract Realism! In each of these movements, masterpieces were created which have become part of the world’s art treasury.

Famous realist artists: yesterday & now

Most famous realist painters include Jean-François Millet, Gustave Courbet (founders of the style), Alexey Savrasov, Ilya Repin, Ivan Shishkin, Wilhelm Leibl, Thomas Eakins, Andrew Wyeth, Lucian Freud with their most famous realism paintings.

Contemporary realism artists like Roberto Ferri and Jeremy Lipkin, hyper-realists Luciano Ventrone and Andrew Talbot, magical realists like Maya Kulenovic… However, we will not make long lists and rankings, as every country has a range of excellent artists who interpret the realist tradition in their own way.

What are realistic artworks today?

In recent decades the style of realism has changed dramatically, its boundaries have widened and artists have acquired unprecedented freedom. They are less prone to social criticism now that the style has ceased to be a tool of political forces. Contemporary realist painters and graphic artists explore the world in detail; they are interested in the human body, the beauty of nature, the life of modern cities.

So what is realism painting? The realist style has no limitations in techniques and materials, the graphics and sculpture are as good as traditional realism oil paintings.
