Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe The latest exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art is called Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe. It showcases outstanding masterworks by revered artists who recorded some of the most newsworthy events and impressive spectacles of eighteenth-century Europe.
It's an interesting concept. Nowadays we have many sources for our news - 24x7 cable news, Twitter, blogs, newspapers, radio, etc but in the 18th Century those were not available. So many got their "news" of an important event from a painting.
I think my favorite is The Fire at the Opera House of the Palais-Royal by Hubert Robert about 1781.
You can almost feel the heat coming off the canvas.
