The realism or the realistic interpretation of matter goes back to the antiquity although a multitude of levels and styles has been used to obtain it.

Starting with our ancestors in the caverns, we have always tried to reflect the realism of the hunt, even if in a schematic way.

Later in ancient Greek, as well as in Mesopotamian, Asian, Egyptian and pre-Columbian cultures, the representation of animals or people have been trying to  use new forms of representing of reality by each artist.

Later, the Roman Empire became inspired by all of them but most of all by the greeks. They made sculptures more realistic, with a very classic format. This, lasted many centuries and impregnated the countries where the empire was based.

During the medieval period everything achieved in the scope of realistic sculptures was lost. More priority was given to the religious and representative, with simpler and more expressive forms.

Subsequently, came richer periods in the representation with a return to more correct classicism. Especially, in the European countries in form of the neoclassicism.

The attempt to show the daily reality returns and with it the realistic sculptures. And till this day they are still based on the ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. Realistic sculptures of animals and people were shown in all their splendour, full of sensuality and movement.

In  the more recent times, we arrived at a realism and even hyperrealism. The realistic sculptures evolve to capture the maximum possible reality, where some artworks appear almost to breathe. And above all to convey all of different feelings, the pieces gain in expressiveness and in interest in the mundane.

Realistic sculptures that show us people in everyday situations, as if they were trapped in a specific second of their life.

At our art gallery Buysculpture  we offer a great variety of realistic sculptures. You can also enjoy works of some realistic artists, such as Martin Duque and Miguel Guia, with very representative pieces of the magical realism of the Spanish Antonio Lopez.
