Romantic subjects in painting

Emotions and inner feeling are basis of all art works whether it is literature or music, painting or poetry. From his state of mind depends, as they say, both fruitfulness grows and quality of work, and subjects depends directly. Tangled plot and mood of the artist can be born under the influence of anger, joy or grief, and love experiences. And the last reason is more often as the mastermind, as a muse is in creating a masterpiece.

There happen to be romanticism to any extent in paintings for centuries, when painting was. Demonstration of feelings was natural not always, such as it was in painting of the 19th - 20th centuries. Rococo riddled with naïve pictures, a beautifully executed but melancholic and stretching from reality (Nicolas Lancret "Marie-Anne de Camargo" 1730, Jean-Honoré Fragonard "The swing" 1767, etc.). In Baroque or Rococo even canvases soaked with romance relations, attention was not given to substance of regulations, and what surrounds heroes - lush vegetation, rich decoration of halls. It was completed crowded compositions with accurate layout plan and fine details. There were feeling of artificial immersing women and men in atmosphere thrust a smile, the laughter, touchingly hitched up eyebrows and a sight anywhere upon them - now on object of desire, then unrequited into the distance.

The other picture demonstrated in neo-classicism, which replaced romanticism with his controversy, classical canons, and passion. It was a vivid period a showing of love, thrust to the feelings and sensual stories in the pictures. The main characters started to live outside space, they taken out of the routine, right now, right this moment (Lawrence Alma-Tadema - "Flag of truce" 1881-1900 and "Courtship" 1881, John William Godward - "The engagement ring" 1891, etc.). Now attention was given to the emotions, overflowing characters, other world has been smoothed and washed away on perimeter, it is a lot of light, absence of minor trifles is a lot of pleasure and love.

Different from the above work by Hunt "The awakening conscience" is romantic and reverent in a way. It painted meticulously accurate in the details and the interior. However, work is beautiful not because of luxury, but heroes caught unawares in the place where things are still scattered and keys are warm from fingers. There were its romance, its own style, own experiences. Godward's greek motifs are already romantic place for dates and secret experiences in its own way. "Yes or No" by Godward warms with good atmosphere. White marble and freshness of lights create a fertile ground for not less pure relations. The work is not vulgar, and timid touch of men trembling fingers to the transparent skin of sweetheart is subtly erotic.

The beginning of 20th century was replete with romantic, its maiden gossip and songs ("The friendly gossips" and "Serenade" pictures of Blaasa), a luscious palette and photographic accuracy of facial expressions of feelings, masks of embarrassment ("On the balcony" Blaas) and shamelessness ("The hireling shepherd" Hunt). This is a mature art, designing for a competent audience capable of seemingly intimate, something juicy and touching, perhaps their experiences by themselves, and the author even more so.
