Industrial Revolution

Cities physically changed in Europe with factories appearing everywhere. People were used to working outdoors in rural areas, but now they were cramped in ugly, smelly and dirty neighborhoods.

Painters mirrored these changes in their artwork, some by portraying an idealized past, others by attempting to spark social and democratic changes. Within this period, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism and Post Impressionism are born.
