A realist painter and photographer from Holland, George Hendrik Breitner did painting that was very popular among the general public but was disdainful to many late 19th/early 20th century art critics because at a time when modernism and its abstractions were taking hold, he promoted realism.  He saw himself as the painter of the people, and the people responded with great fondness for his work.  Among his favorite subjects were city scenes with working-class people in low-incom (showing 500 of 3150 characters).
