Realism. French artist. They gave him money, and explained to him that such and such were the uniforms and the arms of the English soldiers, and such and such were the clothing, or what represents clothing, among the Zulus. Then, eye-witnesses to the military encounters told the Frenchman of what consisted the background to the affair in each case, most likely supplementing their accounts with photographic views. Armed with this information the artist set to work, without having the least personal knowledge of the country he was going to reproduce, nor of the types, the peculiarities, or the customs of Zululand. With much assurance the artist went on with his task and turned out several lively pictures in which there are a great many men attacking an enemy - defending itself; a great number of dead and wounded; much blood; much gunpowder-smoke, and all that kind of thing, yet, with all this, there is total lack of the principal thing: there are no Britishers nor Zulus to be found in the pictures. Instead of the former we behold Frenchmen dressed up in British uniforms, and instead of Zulus, the ordinary Parisian negro-models, reproduced in various more or less warlike attitudes. Well, is that realism? No. Most artists, besides, do not take sufficient pains to reproduce the true light under which the events they treat have really taken place.
