Why was it important for pictures to be painted realistically before photography was invented?

The artist were trying to capture life with paint so they made it as real as they could get it. Funny thing that when photography was invented they copied the style of the painters.

It wasn't until impressionist work was developed that art began to change. Even then, at first, the reviews of impressionistic paintings was bad and not considered art.
