"History of Italian figurative"

The figurative or representational art, unlike the abstract art, concerns the representation of recognizable images of the world around us, sometimes faithful and accurate, sometimes highly distorted. Some of the artistic styles are essentially figurative as the styles of the Renaissance, Baroque and Realism. By contrast, many newer movements such as Impressionism and Expressionism are also figurative, but less concerned about the camouflage with reality. Finally, the Photorealism and Hyperrealism are movements of current representation of recognizable subjects. The term visual arts is also used to denote collectively artistic activities that are based on the figures, that is, painting, drawing, graphic design, architecture, sculpture and other plastic arts.
