Romanticism — The Romantic period saw the fading away of the strict classical disciplines of the 18th century. Two very different movements came to prominence during this time. One led by Constable and Turner, who were influenced by nature, the other involving the stirring works of Goya and Géricault. This film explores the genius of works such as Francisco de Goya’s The Third of May and The Haywain by John Constable. Romanticism has had a profound impact on the history of western art, and this film’s analysis by leading art historians adds to our understanding of the period.
