Romanticism is considered a cultural movement that crossed borders through Europe, uniting different styles such as neoclassicism and realism.  Notable painters between the end of the 18th century and early 19th century include Turner, Friederich, Gericault, Dellacroix, David, and Coubert.

As Charles Baudelaire wrote in 1846 “Romanticism is precisely situated neither in choice of subjects nor in exact truth, but in a mold of feeling.”

Verdi, Chopin. Lizt and Puccini are among some of the composers of this period. John Keats, William Blake and Goethe are among the well known writers of this movement.
