What does recto/verso mean?
Recto / Verso are terms used in two ways. They can mean the right and left hand pages of an open book, or they can mean the front and back of a paper. Right and front are recto, while left and back are verso.Image © Antonio Gravante/Shutterstock
Modern realism describes artwork which depicts things as they exist in reality. Because the art style followed after abstract art was developed, the art is generally painted or drawn using modern approaches while continuing to paint realistic subjects from everyday life.
