Realistische schilderijen/ Realistic artpaintings

Truth for the realistic artist can never consist in what many people believe to be its essence - a simple correspondence with facts.

He is an observer, but he is not a reporter.
He does not copy, but he creates a world which refers us back to our own
world and shows it to us more truly.
 Arthur MCDowell | Realism - A Study in Art and Thought (1918)
