Romantic Period of European Art

    In the first half of the nineteenth century, especially from the 1920s to the 1930s, romanticism was not only popular in France but also in Europe. In the early 19th century, the bourgeois-democratic revolution emerged as an art genre in the French painting world. The school of painting got rid of the fetters of the academic and classicism at that time, focusing on giving full play to the artist's own imagination and creation. The subject matter of his creation came from real life.
    From the late eighteenth to the nineteenth century France experienced three bourgeois revolutions and the proletarian uprising in the Paris Commune. The ups and downs of the artistic trend of this period, showing a very gorgeous scene. The emergence of an art genre or doctrine is, of course, a reflection of a specific cultural trend of thought and is linked to the economic and political development of a certain historical period. But the complexity of the problem lies in the fact that most artists did not practice according to a certain "doctrine" plan formulated in advance, often based on the influence of some ideological trend that they intentionally or unintentionally accepted. After the work was created, the audience, especially It is the commentators who gave a title to the artist in order to explain its artistic characteristics. Due to the different understandings and points of view of critics (and historians of later generations), artists of the same (or a group of) artists sometimes have different titles of titles, and the artist itself does not matter much. Romantic representatives seem to have no controversy in the history of art, but for some other painters, the problem is even more complicated.
    Romantic art, from the 1860s to the 1870s, some Roman painters explored possible ways beyond the strict academic principles of neoclassical art. Among them, the Swiss Henri Fuselli is the most prominent one in his strange anomaly, and his "dream demon" depicts the irrational power of thought. British painter and poet Blake, based on Christian mythology, developed his own well-constructed cosmology, his watercolor skills are exquisite. Among the later generations of painters Constable and Taina used the brilliance of watercolor techniques with oil colors. Constable painted the English countryside and explored the light and color complexity of the atmosphere. Taina has played a natural light effect, creating a dynamic composition, so that the audience as calendar, seems to be swimming along with the screen. In Germany, landscape painter Longgrirt tries to depict the individual's spiritual qualities as part of ordinary natural spirituality by symbolic means. Friedrich was a devout religious figure who implied a respectable natural and spiritual awesomeness with the image of a solitary tree or cross standing in the sky. In France, the main romantic painter using historical and literary themes is Delacroix. In addition to experimenting with color and light, he expressed his feelings with great skill. He is fascinated by the exotic themes, especially the nomadic life of the North African desert. His passionate portrayal of animal life reflects his similar interest with Jericho, who is revolutionary in choosing contemporary events as creative themes.
    Romanticism School affirmed, praised the spiritual value of people, for liberation and human rights for the ideological principle. In the painting advocated a personality, the characteristics of the depiction and expression of emotion. Rich composition changes, strong color contrast, brush strokes fluent, so that the screen has a strong emotional color and exciting artistic charm.
    Fundamentally speaking, the emergence of romanticism in the nineteenth century required the liberation of individuality and spiritual freedom. The classical art of the feudal regime and the academy also made them feel the mental stress that must be overcome. Romantic emphasis on color, and their emphasis on the feelings of the request is consistent. To use color to shape.
