Painting is another word for feeling John Constable. This quote is a useful starting point for this course of five talks. ‘Romanticism in Landscape Painting’ will examine how artists portray their environment with something more than just a realistic depiction. This series of talks will cover the origins of the Romantics and how that style spread around the world, how painters produced an expressive narrative, both personal and collective. We shall also see how this “Romantic” ideal persists down the ages and is still an important part of Landscape Painting today.
