Romanticism, flourishing in the late 18th to mid-19th century, was a cultural and artistic movement that celebrated emotion, individualism, and the sublime in response to the rationality of Neoclassicism. Artists like J.M.W. Turner, Caspar David Friedrich, and Eugène Delacroix embraced powerful landscapes and emotional intensity.

Characterized by a fascination with nature, folklore, and national identity, Romanticism rejected the constraints of reason. In literature, music, and visual arts, artists sought to evoke a sense of wonder and explore the mysteries of the human experience. This movement played a crucial role in shaping the artistic landscape of the 19th century, influencing later movements and fostering a deeper connection between art and personal expression.
