At the end of the 18th century, a philosophical shift in idea and form occurred that shaped the basis for the Romantic era. This age was achieved self-consciously through theory and encompassed the arts and literature. It includes a plethora of styles that are today gathered together under the umbrella of Romanticism, but it also draws much from the preceding Neoclassicism. Romanticism is largely an intellectual movement that grew out of the lingering effects of the revolt against aristocratic rule that begin with the French Revolution. It includes the works of such greats as Jacques-Louis David, Frederic Edwin Church, Eug¨¨ne Delacroix, Winslow Homer, Victor Hugo, Francisco Goya, Thomas Cole, and William Blake.

The Historical Dictionary of Romantic Art and Architecture provides an overview of Romanticism, focusing on its major artists, architects, stylistic subcategories, ideas, and historical framework of the late 18th century style. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and over 200 cross-referenced dictionary entries on famous artists, sculptors, architects, patrons, and other historical figures and events. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Romanticism.
