Art Appreciation 9Running Head: From the Baroque Period Through the Romantic AgeFrom the Baroque Period through the Romantic AgeArt AppreciationDarlene HeffronIntroductionThe artists of the Realism era depicted in their paintings what they saw around them. Unfortunately it was war. During the eighteenth century, faced with the reality of war, the era of idealism seemed absurd to most and therefore realism scenes of battles and the aftermath of the dying were the topics for an artist to create on canvas. Even through these times of war, these artists conveyed different messages, which were quite apparent through their work. There were three particular paintings that depicted those dark times and they are: Eugene Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People c. 1830, Ernest Meissonier, Memory of Civil War (The Barricades) c. 1849, and Gustave Courbet, Burial at Ornans, c. 1849. Eugene Delacroixs Liberty Leading the People c. 1830This detailed painting depicts a battle which took place during the Revolution in July 1830. The painting is very realistic. In Paris, on July 27, 28, and 29, 1830, Eugene Delacroix witnessed first hand the uprising known as the Trois Glorieuses
