Romanticism is an artistic/ intellectual movement from the 18th century in Western Europe.

It stressed strong emotions through music, art, and culture.

It was somewhat a revolt against the government, aristocratic norms, and social organization.

Horror and Awe were two emotions deeply stressed in these works of art.

It was influenced through the enlightenment... because it was kind of a Counter- Enlightenment.

 

 

...Realism...

...A man sits here, the land scape is not beautiful or luxurious, it is simple,

the way it is in real life, the man is clad in simple clothing with is average for the time...

Realism was an era rooted in France in which people tried to depict things the way they are in real life.

It came in the forms of art and literature.

It was popular from the mid- 18th century, til the end of it.

It came around with the "new" photography ability.

It was heavily and completely against romanticism.

Realists revoloved around being realistic, truthful, and honest in everything.

 

Paintings by Monet...Impressionism...

This public work of art has visible brush strokes, open composition, and

is enhancing the light of the inspiration

These artists "broke the rules" when it came to artwork.

These artists worked on the streets for public view, not in private hidden studios as was custom.

Brush strokes were short and rigid, and multi colors were mixed together to create a uniques work.

For example, the artist may use a stroke of blue and a stroke of yellow instead of green... to get the "impression" of green

Realistic scenes were painted to be beautiful, making impressionism a cross between realism and romanticism.
