Romantic Art

Romanticism is an artistic, philosophical, theatrical, and musical movement which originated in Europe toward the end of the eighteenth century, and from its inception was in its death-throdden phase by the mid-nineteenth century. It is one of those concepts which, though it has become vague through time, has a strong core of meaning and relevance for each generation. Its ethereal quality is attributable to its strong Romanticist underpinnings. Romanticism as a philosophy is relatively recent in origin; its development occurred around the time of Pope Innocent III's Nerona Code, when artists and poets responded to the growing unrest among the middle class by producing works ideal for this time and place. Aesthetic necessities motivated these works and romanticism became fashionable.

The central theme of Romanticism, as expressed by its practitioners, is an ideal of happiness and romance, which is why the works of such artists as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albert Einstein, Edouard Vien, Donatello, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Renoir, Manet, Giotto, Monet, appreciated and which still are sought after by lovers and artists alike are often called 'Romantic'. Deservedly so, since romantics conceived of a heightened state of emotional and mental awareness and ecstasy, which later gave way to the idea of artistic creation. Some were in touch with mystical ideas, but romanticism emphasized the visual aspect, which gave way to the expression of feelings in art. The Romanticists' works exude an aura of idealism is associated with high fantasy and mysticism.

The aesthetic sensibility of the Romanticists is reflected in their choices of subjects like nature, religion, love, beauty, childhood memories, warfare, madness, puberty, gardening, architecture, literature, music, science, medicine, and technology. They conceived of an aesthetic balance through which the aesthetic values of reality could be experienced. This balance is portrayed in natural landscapes like fields, woods, hills, lakes, waterfalls and the countryside. In a number of examples from the Romantic period paintings like Mademoiselle de Scudery, The Arrival of the Sun, The Seasons, The Dance of Figurines, The Courts of Sleep, The Sleeping Beauty, The Moon and Stars, The Seasons, The Dance of Statues, The Starry Night, The Water Garden, The Seasons, The Beaches, The Terracotta Warriors, The Lovers, The Starry Night, La Primevere, The Virgin and Child with Six Saints, The Calla Lily, Adoration of the Lake, Adoration of the Rock, Adoration of the Stones, are perfect examples of the romantic period art.

Another group of romantic artists were inspired by the real-life events that happened around them. Some of these are George Catlin, Mary Cassatt, Jacobetti, Joseph Cornell, William Blake, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Max Mara, Peter Shippert, and Daniel Defoe. All these artists express their thoughts in some way about love and romance through their art. Catlin's beautiful illustrations are like a tour de France for the mind.
