REALISTIC PAINTING - STYLES IN PAINTING
This book advocates the heyday of realist painting, faithful pictorial representation and the importance of considering everyday themes objectively, without idealization or picturesque embellishment. It considers this in relation to sketching, the Impressionists and other more simplistic, freer forms of artistic representation. Therefore this is a clearly-defined art form that must adhere to real and present objects.
