Romanticism at first was meant as a revulsion against established values.
Romanticism went to be exalted individualism. The art was based off of emotions, thoughts, imagination, and untamed nature. It was made to show inner struggles and personal values.
Romanticism is "romance languages".
It began in Germany and England in the 1770's. By the 1820's it had swept throughout Europe. It went on to go to America and Canada.
