Overview

Neoclassicism, as a return to the forms and ideals of ancient art and Romanticism as an intellectual attitude, are no longer seen as mutually exclusive alternatives. Looking specifically to Europe, the United States, and Russia, the authors of The Essence of Culture: Neoclassicism and Romanticism have selected the notion of subjectivism as the common denominator that links the visual arts and architecture between the Rococo and Realism periods. A conscious decision was made to extend the time period under consideration to 1848 in order to be able to present painters as widely varied as Johann Heinrich Füssli, John Constable, William Turner, William Blake, Caspar David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge, and Francisco de Goya within this sumptuously illustrated book.
