The 19th Century in art
The 19th Century was a time of great advancement and turmoil. It saw the growth of the British Empire, the Napoleonic wars, great advancement in technology and industrialization, and the resulting urbanization. Due to all of the advancements, growth, movement and change it also saw some of the most diverse art styles in history.
As the century began, the academic style favored by the official Salons or Academies was the only accepted style. But soon that began to change—realists turned convention on its head to give heroic character to everyday subjects in genre painting. The Barbizon school worked towards realism in art using tonalism, colour and soft brushwork. Orientalism sought to capture images of the exotic Far East. Impressionists tried to capture fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. In all there were over forty different artist movements or styles introduced during the 19th century. Many of which are on view at Uno Langmann Limited Fine Art during the South Granville Fall Arts Preview.
