Synopsis

Beginning as a 19th century literary movement, Romanticism was all about the drama, sensation, glory, imagination and the awesome (and awful) wonders of life! Stirred by changing times across Europe, Romantic art championed humanity and emotions and celebrated nature in all its forms. As an artistic movement, Romanticism declined from the 1850s but its influence lives on in the works of JMW Turner, John Constable, Goya and Eugène Delacroix.

An accessible and in-depth guide to some of the most popular and significant art movements, Inside Art Movements explores their origins, evolution and legacy in today's world.

For readers aged 9 and up.
