Departing from the rational idealism of Neoclassical art, Romantic painters and sculptors embraced a worldview that opposed the certainties of reason and celebrated the personal, individual, and subjective. This seminar will investigate key features of this early nineteenth-century movement, ranging from the transformation of history painting to the elevation of landscape subjects and the depiction of the immaterial.
Six sessions. E - $220, L - $242
