Why didn’t great artists achieve the level of realism achieved today?

Just like music, art changes. Different styles and new techniques comes to limelight as centuries goes by. For instance, look at the classical music and hip hop music, quite a great change right? In art, look at renaissance paintings like the Mona Lisa and compare it to today’s hyper realism paintings, drawings and sculptures, see the difference.

So why did Why didn’t great artists achieve the level of realism achieved today? is it the materials they used, is it the time they lived in, or maybe there were certain limitations artist’s had when creating realistic art. In comparison to today’s art, if you google hyper realistic or realistic art, any other person who knows little about art would not believe that someone really created this with his bare hands. Interestingly, there are so many notable artists today who create such work. So, why the difference, what do you think led to such an incredible improvement in art, or are they just two different things?

What do you think?

Fading is one of my best in her channel and i really wanted to learn how she did it.
Thanks a lot Lena I’ve learnt a lot from your YouTube channel. How I wish one could be able to subscribe to one’s channel more than once, I would have done that a thousand times.

Painting beautiful woman

When i looked at her lips, i remembered one thing, sweet words that she told me, ‘you are great.’ I never knew what she meant until i looked into the sky and started drawing. What came into my mind was just her lips. I didn’t know how but the words that came from her lips never stops clinging inside my small memory. Yap i was great.
Sometimes i can’t stop staring at this picture because after she told me, she left. Not because i was not good for her but because i was great. Not great to be left, but great to leave her. She was great but she left me withe her words and through my art, i took my pencil and drew her words on this paper.
