Every age projects its own image in the arts. Following and in ways coexisting with the neoclassical period, the Romantic period lasted from around 1800 to 1850. Characterized by its glorification of the past, and the centralized theme of the feeling of the scene, not its reason. Romanticism scenes are also characterized by their use of color as energy, giving the feel of what is intended to be occurring, directly, and indirectly. Two very renowned romanticist artists were William Blake and Eugene Delacroix. Focusing on the glorification of the past these talented painters would leave behind them masterpieces that would inspire humans to this day.
