Romantics and Realists

compares and contrasts the romantic and realists schools through seven French paintings (1812-1875). The romantic movement, according to poet Charles Baudelaire, was "a manner of feeling." The realists, in the next generation, were guided by observation and the idea that "painting is an essentially concrete art." (National Gallery of Art)
