Realism shocked critics and public, subjects were humble citizens instead of mythical heroes, paintings reflected the artists concern for ordinary people for whom the Industrial Revolution had caused job loses and poor working conditions for those lucky enough to find work. Artists became interested in outdoor painting, scenes depicting different weather conditions and the light at different times of the day. Realism lasted from the first Impressionist exhibition of 1874 to the last in 1886 - some Impressionists artists also reach back to the Realists and some forward to the Post Impressionists
