      Figurative Art

      Figurative art, particularly prominent in the wake of abstract art, signifies a distinct category of artworks that maintain ties to the tangible world as their subject matter. This definition extends retrospectively to all art predating the era of abstract art. Distinguished from modern realism, figurative art employs contemporary idioms, distinguishing it from styles predating post-impressionism. Figurative art encompasses paintings and sculptures that reference reality, yet it transcends mere replication by offering diverse perspectives from the artist's viewpoint. It comprises recognizable subjects from everyday life, skillfully portrayed with a blend of modern or semi-abstract elements, as seen in the works of artists like Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Francis Bacon, and Lucian Freud.
