Romanticism began really in the 1770's in both Germany and England, and by 1820's it had reached much of Europe..

Romanticism brought the end to the more classical forms, and influenced more emotional themes, it was a revolt against the Neoclassicism which brought such things as balance, order and idealization.. Before Romanticism all art forms were set in their ways in similar fashion..

Romanticism brought a new lease of life to artists, it gave them imagination, freedom and spontaneity... There were now no rules in how they produced their art.. It was a movement that encouraged people to be individuals, not like robots that the governments could control.. Nature, Individualism and emotions were the three key things that were encouraged..

Artists now were free to do things they had never done before.. Many romantic techniques were formed to give the viewer feelings towards work...
