"Artists who rejected the official, government-sanctioned exhibitions, or salons, and were consequently shunned by powerful academic art institutions." Thus the creation of the Impressionistic period. These artists "aimed to capture the momentary, sensory effect of a scene - the impression objects made on the eye in a fleeting instant."
An elephant became the face of the Republican Party. A cartoonist did not want President Grant to run for a third term so he drew a cartoon of him as an elephant in the Harper's Weekly 1874.
"Democratic ideals and the Industrial Revolution swept through Europe." (Nineteenth-Century Classical Music, 2016) Many lives were effected by these changes. People struggled to follow the new world orders and fought to live by the old ways. Napoleonic Wars and American Civil Wars were started from these conflicts. Musicians before the impressionism period were hired by churches and or courts as a form of personal entertainment. Music was created specifically for each event they were attending. With the changes of the "New World" came requests for many other things. Such as music for middle class as well as access to school and musical performances. Romanticism was introduced into Art, Music, and Literature.
