  • Romanticism was a movement that emphasized imagination and emotion over reason and order.The Romantic Style in fine arts and literature stressed passion, imagination and intuition, rather than logic than reason. There is expressiveness of emotions and free, spontaneous action in art and literature.

  • Another great artist of the Romantic style is Theodore Gericault (1791-1824) who contributed greatly to the development of Romanticism in French paintings. He also used political and social injustices as his themes, with a play in the human psychology of his subject. This was the best seen in his work, Mad Woman with a Mania of Envy (1822-23), as well as in his 1819 masterpiece, The Raft of the Medusa.

  • The Romantic theme and style also focus on nature in relation to humanity- mans longing to return nature and his or her insignificance to its vastness. This can be seen in his many works of the landscape artists during the period. Among these artists are Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) of the Germany and the English painters, John Constable (1774-1851) and Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851).

  • In his Moonrise over the Sea (1830-35), Friedrich merged the human form with the mod of nature. He painted the vast and barren scene as an echo of the mod of the two figures in silhouettes, both clad in medieval dress. The Dress of the figures Evoke a longing for past era.
