CDR-1282: SR Set: The Common Folk

The speedy acceptance of digital images was lauded as "Not only do images contribute major intellectual content, they also bring aesthetic and emotional impact to the electronic environment."(Michael Ester, 1994) and Charles Rhyne's article on "Images as Evidence in Art History and Related Disciplines,"(1997). Images of paintings depicting common folk in their environment--often by less well-known artists--give us a glimpse--the only one---into life of the common man before the advent of photography. What happened behind the windows in those houses visible in the background of an Altar painting, a cottage or city dwelling? How much has really changed in our daily lives, aside from the technology with which we document our lives? These images are evidence of times gone by and common folk who lived, laughed and loved, as we do today.
