Before the 20th century, the entire history of Western art history is the history of realistic painting, which people have never doubted. There have been such things as "camera" and "photography", the emergence of the realism of the realism of the painting had doubts. In fact, photography can not replace painting, the challenge from the outside will force the art itself more "artistic", which is the art of self-discipline decision. In the 20th century, the western art broke the tradition of classical realism, especially the birth of the modern art concept.

Realistic painting in China has a vast market. For much of the 20th century, Chinese painting remained a flower-painting of realistic painting, which was mainly supported by the government. Xu Beihong as the representative of the French Academy of realistic painting and the Russian Cesi Jia Kefu academic method was regarded as orthodox, art practice and teaching in this model for a long time, engaged in political service for the theme of creation. In the closed program, one thing should be recognized by Chinese and foreign artists, Chinese artists painstaking research on painting techniques greatly improved.

With the opening of the country, the trend of modern art roaring into the 1980s, the Chinese art world really achieve the fission, diversified awareness of the people, the art began with the world, try and work with the world trend of simultaneous development. What has been the fate of traditional and orthodox realistic painting? In modern art, realism painting was in a dilemma, it seems realistic painting is regarded as a closed and conservative synonyms, in this premise, adhere to the academic position has become very pale and weak. In addition, because of the unsatisfactory operation of the art market and the non-synchronization of "market" and "academic", some artists are more interested in the market competition, which makes the realistic painting (of course not limited to realism Painting) of the academic image a little worse flavor. However, realistic painting as a multivariate one yuan, its own artistic mission and artistic charm after experiencing many wind and rain, still diminished its style. From the artistic practice of the show in recent years, realistic style of artists at least give us the following three tips:

First of all, artists pay more attention to the expression of painting language, make full use of the carrier of oil painting art to care for life, concern the relationship between man and society. Different styles of painting language, emphasizing self-appearance highlights. In addition, the artist absorbs the use of a variety of materials in practice (some of the credit should be attributed to the teaching of materials and techniques of Ivers and Binakas), the effect of the screen is better than the eighties and nineties. Finally, the most notable is the integration of the concept of modern art, many artists in the works in a new perspective interpretation and representation of the heart, put forward a refreshing artistic proposition, people call it "neo-classical" , "The new frame painting" and so on, we can be collectively referred to as "new realism."

In short, realistic painting has irresistible charm, has an irreplaceable function, there are so many artists to join them, devote themselves to tempered, will be able to reproduce the endless scenery.On Realistic Oil Painting

Impossible d'assister à la deuxième ouverture Novembre à Baton Rouge, George Rodrigue et je comptais sur le conservateur Marney Robinson, qui nous a étonné avec sa capacité d'utiliser pleinement un espace d'une paroi à l'entrée de la bibliothèque.

Pour créer l'exposition, Robinson a emprunté des peintures de divers artistes au sein de notre collection personnelle, y compris des œuvres originales de George Rodrigue de ses archives, correspondant aux vignettes de la publication UL Press, The Other Side of the Painting. Onze des seize pièces sont exposées au public pour la première fois.

    “This exhibition gives viewers a taste of the original art that inspired Wendy to write her book," explains George Rodrigue.  “This includes not only my early art, but also paintings from her mother and interesting photographs, such as the King Tut line at the New Orleans Museum of Art from 1977.

    "Both Wendy and I congratulate Marney Robinson for her selection and her eye for installation.  We could not be more pleased with the finished exhibition.”
