Realism and modernism
The general feeling of the modernist era was that the world is dying and everyone's focus on individuality and lack of respect for society as a whole is the cause. Many of the realist pieces that we have seen reflect the pre-modern values that we see in philosophy. I don't know how much the are compared by art critics, but you can certainly see parallels between late realist art and early modernism. Do y'all see any of these comparisons? Or am I just misinterpreting something?
