Sadness has been described as "emotional pain associated with...feelings of disadvantage, loss, despair, grief, helplessness, disappointment and sorrow." These are emotions that everyone experiences from time to time.
Sadness is considered one of the six basic human emotions, along with happiness, anger, surprise, fear, and disgust.
In art, sadness is typically depicted using body language. Slumped shoulders, hands covering the face, or the body folded into what has been called the "fetal position" are common markers of sadness. Tears and pained facial expressions may also be shown.
