Description
Information
This is a lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced study of the lives and works of eight painters and writers. Anita Brookner shows how French romanticism followed the political turmoil of the late 18th century and replaced the agnosticism of the Enlightenment and Revolution with a new heroism.

Examining the works of Delacroix, Ingres and Gros, the Brothers Goncourt, Zola, Alfred de Musset and Husymans, Brookner argues that the Romantics in France made the heroism of modern life their creed and transferred their idealism to the domain of art, either as practitioners or as critics.
