Alphabetical Index of the Great Masters of the Romanticism

Romanticism is an art movement that emerged in the late 18th century and lasted until the mid-19th century. It originated in Europe and later spread to the United States.

Romanticism was a reaction against the Enlightenment, which emphasized reason and logic, and the Industrial Revolution, which brought about significant changes in society. Romantic artists and writers sought to express emotions, imagination, and intuition through their works.

Some of the key characteristics of Romanticism include an emphasis on individualism, a focus on nature, a fascination with the past, and a celebration of the sublime. Romantic artists often depicted dramatic landscapes, exotic and mysterious scenes, and heroic figures in their works.

Some of the most notable Romantic artists include William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, Caspar David Friedrich, Francisco Goya, Eugène Delacroix, and John Constable. In literature, Romanticism was represented by writers such as William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Lord Byron.

The Romantic movement had a significant influence on subsequent art movements, including Realism and Impressionism.
