Romanticism in art doesn't involve love in the sense of hearts and flowers. Instead the term "romance" is used in the sense of glorification. Romantic visual artists glorified huge, complex concepts such as liberty, survival, ideals, hope, awe, heroism, despair, and the various sensations that nature evokes in humans. Romanticism had its greatest number of practitioners between the year 1800-1840. The works had a strong sense of emotion that shows a different expression on every face of those paintings. With little touches by the artist, he could portray his subject surrounded by an atmosphere of innocence, madness, virtue, loneliness, altruism or greed. Also you will find many examples of shipwrecks in Romantic paintings. It has a away of speaking about the high mortality rates in those occurrences. Such as, dying slowly of dehydration and starvation if drowning hasn't taken you yet. Romantic art had more than its fair share of natural disasters as well. Such as, fires, thunderstorms, floods, earthquakes, and biblical disasters.
