    It has been used for a number of later movements and trends in art, some involving careful illusionistic representation, such as Photorealismand others the depiction of "realist" subject matter in a social sense, or attempts at both. This Realism, however, made the first breach in the academic outlook of several countries; it encouraged painters to look differently at life around them, so that they came to reconsider the basis of their painting. He began from a Neoclassical background. But the two styles could be quite compatible, as was demonstrated in the works of Thomas Couture, who painted his Romans of the Period of Decline and, almost at the same time, fine portraits and robust nudes. To paint, as Manet showed, was to engage in a bait-and-switch: to seduce the eye of the beholder by dissembling the truth, by making words on a page or paint on canvas appear to be real life. Instead, the figure of Olympia is entirely upright, flattened out into pure colour and line.

    But the two styles could be quite compatible, as was demonstrated in the works of Thomas Couture, who painted his Romans of the Period of Decline and, almost at the same time, fine portraits and robust nudes. Dickens and Thackeray gave England a Realist literature. Born in Cairo, the pasha was a renowned art collector and gambler who came from a Turkish-Albanian family from what is now northern Greece. In a direct quotation of the Venus of Urbino, Manet shows us a woman nude in bed, slipper dangling from her foot, a ribbon around her neck and a flower in her hair. From these neighbours, Realism gained its personality and ultimately its various offshoots. It was also to some extent a reaction against the Enlightenment and against 18th-century rationalism and physical materialism in general.

    The most common types of art criticism are reviews of exhibitions, involving analysis of works by one or more artists. It is from Courbet, more than from any painter of his time, that the third generation of Realist artists derived their art. Taking a leap from an idealized human form of the past, Rodin stripped away many narrative references to the classical myth that were still attached to the academic sculpture of the late 19th-century. The romance was a tale or ballad of chivalric adventure whose emphasis on individual heroism and on the exotic and the mysterious was in clear contrast to the elegant formality and artificiality of prevailing Classical forms of literature, such as the French Neoclassical tragedy or the English heroic couplet in poetry.
