The movement of romanticism in art (18th-19th c) is briefly reviewed. This artistic movement
institutionalized freedom of personal expression of the artist and presented various art styles, which were
rooted mainly in topics of the past. One of the manifestations of the romantic spirit was Neoclassicism which
was based on copies of works of Greek and Roman antiquities. Romantic painters, musicians and architects
have left as heritage an amazing wealth of art works.
