Neoclassicism and Romanticism free pdf This is a breathtaking and superbly designed volume on the influential Neoclassic and Romantic art movements. It is magnificently illustrated, with fascinating analysis from an expert and artist biographies, at a surprisingly accessible price. This is a beautiful gift-book. Here is a rich, informative introduction to an exciting period in art history. Neoclassicism, which arose during the 18th Century's Age of Enlightenment, was inspired by the rationality, simplicity and grandeur of ancient Greece and Rome. In fact, many of its greatest works reflect archaeological discoveries of the time. In reaction to this austere style, Romanticism sought to reinfuse art with passion, drama and mysticism. Here are the key masterpieces of both schools - works by Canova, Constable, Copley, David, Blake, Delacroix, Gericault, Turner, Ingres and others - complete with biographies of the artists and accompanied by a text that illuminates the ideas and events that shaped an era of artistic ferment.
