ARTH 440 - Romanticism
The French poet and critic Charles Baudelaire wrote in 1846, “Romanticism is precisely neither in the choice of subjects nor in exact truth, but in the manner of feeling…”  In this seminar, we will investigate this important “movement,” which represented a significant departure from forms of expression that had dominated the visual arts, poetry, music and philosophy for generations.  From roughly 1798 to the 1850s, Romanticism was a widespread Western phenomenon; we will look at examples from France, Britain, Germany, Spain and America.  Topics to be studied in some depth will be landscape, music, poetry, the graphic arts, the passage of time, and the artist.  There will be classes at the National Gallery.
