Collection: Romanticism

Romanticism was an artistic and cultural movement that emerged in Europe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It emphasized emotion, individualism, and imagination, and rejected the rationalism and order of the Enlightenment. Romantic artists sought to express their feelings and passions through their art, often portraying dramatic, exotic, or supernatural themes.Romanticism had a significant impact on literature, music, and visual arts, and its influence can still be seen today. Some of the most famous Romantic artists include William Blake, Caspar David Friedrich, Francisco Goya, J.M.W. Turner, and Eugene Delacroix. Romanticism was also a precursor to the Realist and Impressionist movements that followed in the 19th century.
