Trace the romantic period from its birth at the end of the "enlightened" eighteenth century to the final reaction against romanticism during the mid-nineteenth century. Glorious works of art and music convey the triumph of individuals, with all their moods, feelings, and turbulent emotions. Your students will discover the reemergence of the spiritual and intangible side to human nature and will gain a much more comprehensive picture of this period. The program studies historical events, especially the revolutions in France, and analyzes their effects on Goya, Delacroix, Turner, and other artists. It also explores romantic thought and the development of imagination, as well as the imitation of architecture from previous eras.
