Romanticism cannot be identified with a single style, technique, or attitude. Movement in Art, Music, and Literature characterized by a strong interest in Nature, a revolt against the Neoclassic adherence to rules, form and traditions, a highly imaginative and subjective approach, emotional intensity, and a dreamlike or visionary quality. Whereas classical and neoclassical art is calm and restrained in feeling and clear and complete in expression, romantic art characteristically strives to express by suggestion states of feeling too intense, mystical, or elusive to be clearly defined. In their choice of subject matter, the romantics showed an affinity for nature, especially its wild and mysterious aspects, and for exotic, melancholy and melodramatic subjects.
