During the second half of the Eighteenth Century, the European art world saw the development of a new artistic style known as Romanticism. The rise of this style of art gained momentum in response to the Industrial Revolution and symbolized a revolt against social order and religion. Romantic art put particular emphasis on individualism and imagination and most of all, it exalted emotion over intellectual rationalization.
Romantic art delved deeply into the emotional state of the artist, going beyond the traditional subject matter for paintings and delving into lesser-examined subject matter such as passion, horror, mysticism and the spirit. The slightly darker subject matter can be seen in works such as Goya’s “The Madhouse.” Along with the new subject matter, this period of art brought with it a new use of color as a means to express mood and artists handled the paint more freely. All of this led to the creation of some of the most unforgettable art pieces in history. ARTFLAKES has made these striking images available in our large online library of poster images.
