Romanticism. (1800-1860)

In painting this artistic current, originating in Germany develops under the impulse of poetic works of Tieck and Wackenroder which seek their inspiration in a return to the Middle Ages, in the union between art and religion. Nazaréens, a community of German painters who live Rome (Pforr, Cornélius, Fohr, Olivier, Schorr Von Carolsfeld, Overbeck) treat in their works of Germanic old topics (the legend of Nibelungen, Faust, the accounts of chevalerie). The romantic painting expresses the exacerbation of the feelings in a poetic atmosphere which can go until extreme sentimentalism. Artists like Philipp Otto Runge and Caspar David Friedrich suggests the union of the man and nature by the evocation of romantic landscapes.
