„Mother Grouse“

from the gallery of 200pt

This print series is inspired by the Romantic era of the 1770's as well as it's brief revival in the 1980's.

The Romanticism of the late 18th century was a reaction to the Enlightenment Era, a time when life was approached and understood through scientific study and formulaic deduction. As opposed to the Rationalists of the Enlightenment Era, the Romantics were much more interested in imagination and emotion and were more inspired by the beauty and adventure they found in untamed nature than the mechanical rigor of the industrial revolution. This series of prints seeks to illustrate the struggle between Romanticism and Rationalism while also exploring the harmony that can occur when two diametrically opposed ideas come together.
