Realists reacted to the industrial Revolution by creating what types of paintings?
A. Images of the wealthy.
B. Images of the middle class.
C. Images of soliders
D. Images of despair.
Is the answer C?
Thank you for your help.
I meant B.
I think B is correct.
Thank you for your time.
These don't look like images of the middle class.
Yes. I think D is the best answer.
Besides -- who made up the middle class during the industrial revolution??
This is another of those questions where none of the multiple choice answers are really correct. 19th century realist painters often turned to landscapes, often bucolic landscapes, perhaps longing for a simpler time. Urban scenes often depicted railroad trains, smoke, etc. Some, like Georges Serault (sp?) depicted middle class people. Others depicted (as artists always did) wealthy people who could afford to have their portraits painted.
I got it wrong the answer was B.
