Overview

Viewers can discover the art of the Romantics in volume five of a six-volume series on western art from the extraordinary use of light by English landscape artist J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) to Spain's Francisco Goya (1746-1828), whose paintings forced the viewer to face life's inhumanity, to Frenchman Theodore Gericault's (1791-1824) portraits of the mentally ill. This 50-minute program illustrates how Romanticism was a rebellion against the academic and rational thought of Neoclassicism, how the artwork from the late 18th century to the mid-19th century embodied melancholy, nostalgia, and romantic imagery with an irrational and subjective approach. ~ Brooke Hodess
