The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism




Art Fortune | Romanticism


Romanticism refers to a genre of art that was popular in Europe during the late eighteenth to mid nineteenth centuries. Created as a response to Neoclassicism, this movement sought to promote emotion over reason. This style is characterized by emotional intensity, the imagination, subjectivism, nature, and irrationalism. While not all romantic artists specialized in each of these themes, most Romantic art does include at least one of the principals. Romanticism spread all throughout Europe and eventually gave way to the Hudson River School, the first American institution for landscape painting that was active from 1835-1870.


French Romantic artists such as Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Eugene Delacroix and Theodore Gericault dominated much of the Romantic art movement, but other artists such like Spanish artist Francisco Goya, American Thomas Cole, and John Henry Fuseli from Switzerland all were key members. Key artworks from this movement also include Liberty Leading the People, The Raft of the Medusa, Third of May 1808, and Hannibal and His Army Crossing the Alps.
