Every age projects its own images into its art. The Romantic period lasted from around 1800 to 1850. This period was characterized mainly by a glorification of emotions and the use of reaction against heroism, the supernatural, and patriotism. There was an extreme emphasis on feeling rather than reason. The Romantic period was also characterized by its use of color as a way to show what was occurring or what was going to occur in the art pieces. Two major artists of the Romantic period whose artwork continues to influence the world today is Samuel Scott and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. These artists focused on the glorification of the past and the emphasis on feeling in their paintings rather than reason.
