Figurative Art

A collection of traditional paintings, often inspired from poetical imagery, nostalgic moods, and aesthetic aspiration.

Figurative Art is a type of art that is based on real-world objects, people, or scenes. It is also known as Figurativism and dates back to ancient Greece.

Realistic representation has been one of the goals of visual art since the earliest times - the ancients called it mimesis.

During some periods artists have striven to create the effect of an illusion, with images that seem to extend the real space of the viewer.

At other times they have striven for realism - an impression of social reality.
