Romanticism in Art - Characteristics, Artists and ArtworksRomanticism (also known as the Romantic movement or Romantic era) is an art movement that emerged in Europe in the late 18th century and reached its peak in the mid-19th century. It is characterized by a focus on emotion, imagination, and individualism, and a rejection of the strict rules and conventions of neoclassicism. Romantic art often features dramatic, emotional, and often heroic scenes, and is known for its use of vibrant colors, bold brushstrokes, and strong contrasts of light and dark. It frequently depicts nature, often in wild and untamed forms, and explores themes such as love, death, and the supernatural. Some of the key features of Romantic art include its emphasis on the individual experience, its use of symbolism and allegory, and its interest in the exotic and the otherworldly. It was used in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, and literature. Romanticism had a significant impact on the development of modern art, particularly on movements such as impressionism and symbolism. Some of the most famous Romantic artists include William Turner, Caspar David Friedrich, and John Constable. Famous paintings of Romanticism are "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" by Caspar David Friedrich, "The Hay Wagon" by John Constable or "The Fighting Temeraire" by J.M.W. Turner.
