Realist Artists:

Jean Baptiste Camille Corot | Amazing depictions of landscapes are the legacy of this visionary realist painter.

Gustave Courbet | Courbet was a champion of realism in painting, which is reflected in his works Burial at Ornans and the sombre The Stone Breakers.

Jean Francois Millet | This artist elevated images of peasants and working people to the status of "high art" in his sensitive portrayals of such subjects as The Gleaners.
