About The Artwork

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.

CHOOSE ALWAYS, BUT ALWAYS, ONLY THAT MASTERPIECE THAT TRANSMIT YOU SOMETHING OR THAT SIMPLE YOU JUST LIKE. Nace el 1 de Agosto de 1973. Arquitecto.A partir de 1985 se forma plasticamente en la Academia de Miguel Perez Macias donde desarrolla el Dibujo y la Pintura con referentes del Renacimiento Italiano y el Impresionismo Francés. Implementa mas adelante la técnica del Bolígrafo en sus Dibujos. Como los grandes maestros.Acercarse a los países de la Pintura de este Artista puede llegar a equivaler a la mas prodigiosa de las aventuras .Emprendida en primer termino por su imaginación desbordante,codificada de inmediato por una serie de visiones numeradas ,en las que Venecia y la maternidad, ademas de expresivas fotografías y de impresionantes desnudos encuentran un lugar preponderante, y que tienen su justificación mas inmediata y a su mas acabada explicación en esos mismos otros cuadros, pequeños y en apariencias secundarios, que completan y que enriquecen notablemente a la composición principal.En la cual Marco Ortolan se revela como lo que acabadamente es, un pintor de primera linea, un heredero, seguro y confiado y de primera linea, de los bienes plásticos del Renacimiento Italiano, al cual una y otra vez alude, y no solo por razones de composición, sino en busca de las mas limpias raíces de su arte, tan profundizado y expandido que también su obra, la propia, concluye para ser tomada como nacida en pleno siglo XVI, y en ese lugar de privilegio, Venecia, cuyas aguas siguen manando, perennemente, y sin que se interrumpa jamas la vitalidad de su fuente reflujo creador.Venecia, y dentro de ella, varias obras de arte nacidas en distintas latitudes de esa Italia siempre asombrosa cuando se trata de medir la capacidad y la gran calidad de sus diversas e importantes corrientes estáticas a lo largo de tantos siglos, que consiguen empero el verdadero milagro de que esa corriente se mantenga constantemente renovada y fresca, tanto que la misma obra de Marco Ortolan parece emanada de ella, no una actitud de respeto y de gran comprensión estética, dos de las mayores virtudes de cuanto este joven Arquitecto y Pintor, en cuanto lleva a la tela.Empapado a cada momento de esas génesis de otra agua, la que baña Venecia y sus rincones mas hermosos, y a la que Marco Ortolan evoca con palabras visuales entrecortadas de animación y de admiración, porque uno e indivisible es el acento que las vincula a ambas, y una, e, la esplendida hermosura que a ambas corona.
