From an original perspective, this book not only examines painting and sculpture, but also decorative arts, literature, fashion and customs, giving a deep and accurate account of the artistic creativity in all its forms during the XIX century

The third book of this series continues the careful survey of the arts in Italy in the Nineteenth century, analyzed in the wider European context.
From an original perspective, this book not only examines painting and sculpture, but also decorative arts, literature, fashion and customs, giving a deep and accurate account of the artistic creativity in all its forms during the Nineteenth century.

This book is dedicated to Realism, to the debate on painting from life, to the freedoms in the representation of reality, but also to the “macchia”, which transformed landscape and other genres of Nineteenth century painting in brand new images by means of colour.
In the historical period analyzed, from the Risorgimento revolts to the Unification of Italy, art gets interested in modern history themes and social topics, sometimes anticipating the introspective analysis of the beginning of the Twentieth century
