  • The Painting of Modern Life: In the mid-19th century urban life was rapidly transforming and new spaces were opening such as parks, racetracks, grand boulevards, and an explosion of new venues for popular entertainment. New technologies such as photography and groundbreaking medical discoveries such as x-rays were also being developed.
