The reality in its true form is far from flawlessness and perfection, yet it captivates with its boundless beauty. This apparent contradiction can be discovered in countless facets of naturalistic pictures, where contemporary artists depict the visible reality in all its forms and details.
Naturalistic Painting: Realistic Representations Without Subjective Distortion
Naturalism as an epoch and movement is distinguished from both Realism and Idealism. Its aim is the objective, value-free depiction of reality in all its facets. While artists inclined towards Realism always infuse their works with a certain aesthetic tone, including a constructing element, naturalistic artists are committed to absolute objectivity.
In traditional naturalistic pictures, reality is depicted entirely free from subjective feelings and preferences, including all painful, offensive, or otherwise disturbing details. Aesthetic compositions or abstract ideas play no role in Naturalism paintings. Instead, many naturalistic pictures have an almost photorealistic, documentary-like character. It is precisely this claim to represent reality as distortion-free as possible that makes Naturalism equally attractive to both artists and art enthusiasts.
Pictures in Naturalism - Unique Styles and Techniques
In naturalistic pictures, two motifs dominate above all: landscapes and people. What may initially seem like a limitation reveals an impressive diversity upon closer inspection, which artists from around the world harness to their advantage. A stylishly dressed woman gazing out to sea, an erupting volcano sending black plumes of smoke into the sky, or a sunlit stream with young trees bending in the wind - naturalistic depictions offer a suitable motif for every taste. This also applies to the materials used: whether watercolour, chalk, oil, or acrylic - the range of materials and media in naturalistic painting is just as vast and diverse as in other styles - from Abstract Expressionism to Street Art.
