Realism was an artistic movement that began in France in the 1850s, after the 1848 Revolution.Realists rejected Romanticism, which had dominated French literature and art since the late 18th century. Realism revolted against the exotic subject matter and exaggerated emotionalism and drama of the Romantic movement. Instead, it sought to portray real and typical contemporary people and situations with truth and accuracy, and not avoiding unpleasant or sordid aspects of life. Realist works depicted people of all classes in situations that arise in ordinary life, and often reflected the changes brought by the Industrial and Commercial Revolutions. The popularity of such "realistic" works grew with the introduction of photography—a new visual source that created a desire for people to produce representations which look objectively real.

The Realists depicted everyday subjects and situations in contemporary settings, and attempted to depict individuals of all social classes in a similar manner. Classical idealism and Romantic emotionalism and drama were avoided equally, and often sordid or untidy elements of subjects were not smoothed over or omitted. Social realism emphasizes the depiction of the working class, and treating them with the same seriousness as other classes in art, but realism, as the avoidance of artificiality, in the treatment of human relations and emotions was also an aim of Realism. Treatments of subjects in a heroic or sentimental manner were equally rejected.

Realism as an art movement was led by Gustave Courbet in France. It spread across Europe and was influential for the rest of the century and beyond, but as it became adopted into the mainstream of painting it becomes less common and useful as a term to define artistic style. After the arrival of Impressionism and later movements which downgraded the importance of precise illusionistic brushwork, it often came to refer simply to the use of a more traditional and tighter painting style. It has been used for a number of later movements and trends in art, some involving careful illusionistic representation, such as Photorealism, and others the depiction of "realist" subject matter in a social sense, or attempts at both.

"Always choose that work that transmits something to you, that sensitizes you above all and remember that Art is interpretation among other things." Architect. Since 1985 he is trained in the plastic arts at the Academy of Miguel Perez Macias where he develops Drawing and Painting with references from the Italian Renaissance and French Impressionism. He later implements the Pen technique in his Drawings. Like the great Masters. Approaching the countries of this Artist's Painting may amount to the most prodigious of adventures. Undertaken in the first place by his overflowing imagination, immediately encoded by a series of numbered visions, in which Venice and motherhood, in addition expressive photographs and impressive nudes find a preponderant place, and that have their most immediate justification and their most complete explanation in those same other paintings, small and in secondary appearances, which complete and notably enrich the main composition. Marco Ortolan reveals himself as what he is, a first-rate painter, a heir, sure and confident and of the first line, of the plastic goods of the Italian Renaissance, to which he repeatedly alludes, and not only for compositional reasons. , but in search of the cleanest roots of his art, so deepened and expanded that also his work, his own, concludes to be taken as born in In the mid-sixteenth century, and in that privileged place, Venice, whose waters continue to flow, perennially, and without ever interrupting the vitality of its creative ebb. Venice, and within it, several works of art born in different latitudes of that Italy always astonishing when it comes to measuring the capacity and great quality of its various and important static currents throughout so many centuries, which nevertheless achieve the true miracle that this current is constantly renewed and fresh, so much so that the same Marco Ortolan's work seems to emanate from it, not an attitude of respect and great aesthetic understanding, two of the greatest virtues of what this young Architect and Painter, insofar as he takes to the canvas.
