How Art Works Week 9: Revolutionism Case Studies: Romanticism Impressionism

  1. 1. How Art Works Week 9: Revolutionism Case Studies: Romanticism Impressionism
  2. 2. Romanticism • I believe poetry, paintings and literature are valuable ways to express emotion • All that Enlightenment emphasis on reason goes too far, there needs to be more emphasis on imagination and emotion • I find medieval legends and folklore to be more interesting than Greek and Roman thought • While the Enlightenment guys might have said “reason is all!”, I believe “Feeling is all!” (to quote Romantic writer Goethe) • It is more important to live intensely and guided by feelings than to live wisely and guided by reason • I like poems and paintings that glorify nature • I prefer art and literature that is emotional and fantastical rather than portraying reality exactly as is • I am not sure that the Industrial Revolution improved society. In fact, I think it was overwhelmingly dehumanizing • I would like to travel/read about exotic lands • I might even be open to helping people fight for independence in faraway lands because I feel that it is important (and exciting)
  3. 3. David Napoleon At Saint-Bernard (1801) France the formative stage of romanticism coincided with the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), the first French romantic painters found their inspiration in contemporary events
  4. 4. Romanticism and Revolution
  5. 5. A Revolutionary Movement • The artist must be separate from from corrupting society • The artist must be the Critic of society, must start Revolution • The artist as genius • Support for the French Revolution. • The Industrial Revolution is affecting society • Individuals are important but they feel alone and isolated • Industrialization dehumanizes workers • Maybe violent change is better
