Filter list according to painting color palette:
 
Jean-François Raffaelli was born in Paris, France in 1850 and died in 1924. He was a realist painter, sculptor, actor, writer, and printmaker. In wasn't until age 20 that Raffaelli realized he wanted to pursue painting verses music and theater. The very year he started, one of his paintings was awarded the honor of being displayed at the Salon exhibition. The next year at age 21 he began an intensive study under the painter Jean-Leon Gerome at the Fine Arts school in Paris, this was his only formal training. Five years later Rafaelli discovered his nitch and passion for realist art. He began painting the people of his time, in particular the peasants, working class, and rag pickers in suburbia. Although he considered himself a realist, he usually exhibited with the impressionists. He realist work was supported by famous critics like Huysmans and even Edgar Degas. The working class rag-picker became a symbol of alienation for an individual in modern society. Art historian Barbara S. Fields wrote of him: "He hoped to set himself apart from those unthinking, so-called realist artists whose art provided the viewer with only a literal depiction of nature."
