Transcript of Realism

What is Realism?
Realism was an idea in literature, art, and music in the 20th century that showed different types of work, and reflections of the time periods.
The Realism movement in America came into existence after the Romanticism period during the Civil War. It came about as a reaction against the nature of romanticism and sentimentalism.
Realism created a transition from an emphasis on strange existences toward a faithful rendering of the ordinary.
