Social realism is an art form or movement concerning itself with realistic reflections or interpretations of simple, everyday occasions or current political or socio economic events. Often considered a reaction to the earlier movement of romanticism, social realism confronts the truths underlying our ordinary existences in contemporary society.

“There is nothing in this world that does not have
a decisive moment”
Cardinal de Retz (b.1613 – d.1679)
