Romanticism

Romanticism embodies ‘a new and restless spirit, seeking violently to burst through old and cramping forms, a nervous preoccupation with perpetually changing inner states of consciousness, a longing for the unbounded and the indefinable, for perpetual movement and change, an effort to return to the forgotten sources of life, a passionate effort at self-assertion both individual and collective, a search after means of expressing an unappeasable yearning for unattainable goals.’(Isaiah Berlin). The early period of the Romantic Era was a time of war. There were three generations of Romantic artists. The first emerged in the 1790s and 1800s, the second in the 1820s, and the third later in the century. ‘To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art – that is, intimacy, spirituality, colour, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts.’ ( Charles Baudelaire). In consequence historical subjects or portraits were the most favoured subject matter. Baron Gerard, Girodet, Delacroix, Gericault, Chasseriau and Gustave Moreau were all leading artists of this movement which have been sold to international museums by The Matthiesen Gallery.
