Description

This unit explores European Romantic Art as it took root and flowered in Europe in the fifty years from 1780-1830. With a specific emphasis on the relationship of Romantic art with wider social, cultural, philosophical and literary currents, we will engage with some of the most compelling and complex art and architecture of the period, including works by Caspar David Friedrich, Henry Fuseli, William Blake, Joseph Turner, and Eugene Delacroix.
