Romanticism and Art Paperback / softback
Part of the World of Art series
In the age of revolutions, at the end of the eighteenth century, the mental and spiritual life of North America and Europe began to undergo an historic and irreversible change.
The ideas of spontaneity, direct expression and natural feeling transformed the arts, encouraging artists to explore the extremes in human nature, from heroism to insanity and despair. Widely praised on first publication and now revised, William Vaughan's classic study analyses the achievement of the leading artists of the day - masters such as Goya, Blake, Gericault, Turner and Delacroix - and sets in context a host of fascinating figures in painting, sculpture and architecture: Palmer, Runge, Soane, Gros, Overbeck, Schinkel, Flaxman, Pugin, Bingham and many more.
