Realism in Western art: 1840s to 1880s
Realist art became a dominant force from the 1840s in Europe and the United States, mainly as a response to the impact of industrialisation, colonisation and urbanisation. Most Realist artists, beginning with the French, shared an interest in the disparity between the social classes, so their art was often considered provocative.
