In the late 18th century, most art had clear European influences. The main styles included Neo-Classicism, Sentimentalism, and Romanticism. Later came the Wanderers Movement. These artists aimed to be realistic in the subject of the paintings. The 1860's themes in art consisted of Realism, Populism, and National Identity. Many painters focused on history, portraits of strong figures, and genre painting with strong themes.
