Naturalism, and Jean-Francois Millet自然主義與米勒

Take a look at a style of art that tries to show things as they are.
  If you were setting out to create a painting of a subject, there would be many choices available to you. Take the idea of painting a bouquet of red roses for instance. You could choose to draw vibrant lines around and inside the flowers, giving the painting energy and movement. Or you could depict the roses using simple geometric shapes, something like what Picasso might have done. If you took either of these routes, your painting could turn out to be quite interesting. It would not, however, be a painting that could be described as being in a Realist or Naturalist style.
  "Naturalism," as well as "Realism" which it is often linked with, usually refers to a style of art that tries to show the object exactly as it is in real life. Sometimes artists who work in the style of Realism go so far as to try to trick the viewer into thinking the painting is the real thing.
  What makes Naturalism different from Realism is that Naturalism puts an emphasis on nature. It says that objects should be painted realistically, as they appear, and that they should be displayed in a way that is true to nature. For most people, however, the difference between the two styles is not always very clear.
  The Naturalist movement took place in the 1800s, and it came about as a reaction against Romanticism. Romanticism describes an approach to painting in which the object is portrayed in the way the artist imagines it, with a great deal of style and emotion. In the end, the object usually looks quite different from how it would look to the eye in day-to-day life.
