Romanticism: (1800 - 1850) The Romantic Movement spread from art into literature and philosophy. It emphasized emotional,  spontaneous and imaginative approaches. In the visual arts, Romanticism came to signify the departure  from classical forms and an emphasis on emotional and spiritual themes. Caused by the sudden social  changes that occurred during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era, Romanticism was formed as  a revolt against Neoclassicism and its emphasis on order, harmony, balance, idealization, and rationality.  Romanticism began in Germany and England in the 1770’s, and had spread throughout Europe by the  1820’s. Not long after, its influence had spread overseas to the United States. The movement focused on imagination, emotion, and freedom by way of subjectivity and individualism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
