Neoclassicism, as a return to the forms and ideals of ancient art, and Romanticism, as an intellectual attitude, are no longer seen as mutually exclusive alternatives. Looking specifically to Europe, the United States and Russia, the authors of this carefully researched book have selected the notion of subjectivism as the common denominator that links the visual arts and architecture between the periods of rococo and realism. A conscious decision was made to extend the time period under consideration to 1848 in order to be able to present painters as widely varied as Johann Heinrich Fssli, John Constable, William Turner, William Blake, Casper David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge and Francisco de Goya within this sumptuously illustrated book. Highlights: Comprehensive overview of the development of Neoclassicist and Romantic art in Europe and North America Illuminating excursions into areas such as the foundations of Neoclassicism in the Renaissance architecture of Andrea Palladio (15081580) European painting between two revolutions: the development of painting in France from Jacques Louis David through to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and his antipode, Eugne Delacroix Richly illustrated with photographs taken exclusively for this book The Author In this lavishly illustrated volume, editor Rolf Toman has brought together carefully selected articles written by eleven renowned authors that vividly illustrate and elucidate the complexities Neoclassicism and Romanticism from the perspectives of architecture and art history.
