Works Cited

 

Bohemian artists used new ways of looking at the world to portray their political leanings and ideas. Three bohemian artists used their work to portray their thoughts and ideas about the world around them:

  • Gustave Courbet and Jean-Francois Millet used their representations of ordinary people and places to portray their Republican feelings.
  • William Makepeace Thackeray drew satirical caricatures to mock the bourgeoisie and upper classes.
