    British Romantic Art in Society
    Styles and Techniques
    British Romantic Art typically uses nature and sympathetic real life experiences to convey and emphasize emotion, in similar manners as the poets from Romanticism Poetry and the musicians from Romantic Music. Nature can be portrayed as a serene landscape, as seen in William Turner’s Landscape with a River and a Bay in the Distance. In other paintings, nature’s uncontrollable power and danger is portrayed in shipwrecks and man’s struggle with nature, as in William Turner’s The Slave Ship. Romantic artists used their art to portray their love and connection with nature. Their painting techniques generally encompass bright, vibrant colors, or paler and darker tones that do not provide contrast within the painting, but are rather blended and create a softer image. Many times, the immediate focus of the eye is drawn to some component of nature rather than the manmade aspects. Many times the painter’s brush strokes do not create precise lines, but are vague and provide a “blurred” perception.
    Although nature was an important concept of the Romantic era, there were other themes and emotions that many of the Romantic artists focused on. Emotions were expressed over reason and senses were expressed over intellect. This philosophy of portraying emotions and senses was primarily developed out of a disgust of the focus on reason during the Enlightenment, and wanted to bring art back to feelings and sentiments. They were intigued by moods, heroes, the inner struggles, the genius, the passion, the mysterious and unknown, the medieval, the exotic and even the "satanic". Rules and regulations were put aside and emotional and spiritual needs began to rule the movements of the brush.
    Comparisons to other Artistic Styles
    Romanticism is considered to be a reaction the Baroque (17th Century) and Neo-classical (Mid 18th Century to Early 19th Century) artistic styles. Romantic art very much moves away from the use of realistic depictions of science and the human body with sharp lines and contrasts, known as chiaroscuro, from Baroque paintings and embraces softer elements in comparison. It takes nature and the human body in a purer form without accentuating the science of the body, but instead capturing emotions. Neo-Classicism has similar elements as the Baroque era, not focusing on “trivial” emotions, as they viewed them, of the Rococo, but having more serious topics of paintings. Further, Romanticism it is also comparatively similar to the Rococo style of the 18th century. Romantic styles, like Rococo art, is ornamented, with little contrast, but affects the audience and sparks emotions. In fact, Romantic art even had an impact on later art, such as impressionism and surrealism that developed in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
    Examples of other Well-known artists
    Samuel Palmer-He is considered to be one of the English landscape painters, mainly producing pastoral paintings. Palmer fits into romantic art because of his numerous landscape paintings, with a clear influence of Blake. One of his most notable works illuminating typical styles is http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/7/73/Palmer._A_Dream_in_the_Appenine_c.1864_(watercolor_and_gouache_on_paper_laid_on_wood)_Tate_Britain.jpg%7CA|Dream in the Appenine ]](1864).
    James Ward- Although Ward is one of the lesser known artists, he is still very characteristic of this era. Many times he portrays large landscapes with horses and rivers. A Horse Drinking at a Stream (1838) portrays his typical topic.
    Richard Parkes Bonington- Bonington’s works typically consisted of a watercolor medium and was noted by many reputable influences

    moreWelcome to BritishRomanticism!
    This Wiki was researched and produced by members of Mr. Bariexca's Spring 2007 Honors Major British Writers class at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ. Its aim is to provide a humanities-based overview of the British Romantic era (ca. 1789-1824).
    Project History
    This project came to be as I sought an alternative to PowerPoint presentations. PowerPoint is great, but I was looking for a way to engage my students on a deeper level. Even the flashiest, most "bell-and-whistly" slide presentation is likely to be deleted or archived on a student's computer immediately after presentation, its purpose served in the span of 10-15 minutes of a class period.
    In the spirit of service learning, I wanted my Honors English students to not only research and present information, but to create a document that can be used as a resource by other students, both here at Hunterdon Central and at other sites.
    As all educators know, we learn best when we teach. With this project, students not only fulfill the roles of researchers, organizers, and learners, but also as teachers: to each other, to the students who access this site, and to the teachers who use this as a sample upon which to base their own projects.
    Finally, credit where credit is due: this project was modeled largely on Dan McDowell's AP World History Review project.
    Our Task
    Conduct research on the Romantic period in Britain (ca. 1789 - 1824) in one of three areas: poetry, visual art, and music.
    Collaboratively compose a 500-700 word article on one of the three areas above.
    Conduct a detailed critical analysis of two works of the time period - deconstruct them to explain what makes them Romantic pieces.
    Provide complete documentation for all sources
