Does academy-style still exist?
Today it is questionable whether the academy art still exists. It is a difficult question to be answered, given the numerous events of discontinuity with traditional painting, if for a certain reason we refer it to realistic painting. This style has been adopted by the academy since its birth, but we must say that photography was not yet born. The first academic schools -as we known them- date back to the end of 1800. Today there are numerous academy professors who are engaged in abstract or conceptual art, video art or site specific art, which leads us to a recoding of the concept of academy to the present.
