Popularly called “Realism,” representational or figurative painting is the benchmark of all other art. It addresses its subject directly. Concept and meaning are incorporated into the image by integrating them with the subject, rather than by breaking with it completely.

As with abstract art, realism comes in many shadings and guises. It may be naturalistic or it may be extremely stylized. It may incorporate a message or it may be a simple visual statement. Traditional subjects for representational paintings include landscape, still life, portraits and figures. Like representational sculpture article this style enjoys continuing popularity in the art world.
