This oil painting that offers a peak at the beauty of the mid 1800’s rough landscape. There are particular brushstrokes for the rain. The rain creates a veil over the speeding train as is travels to its destination. The grays/white of the clouds emphasizes how intense the rain is. Its crossing over the Maidenhead Railway Bridge


4 Temeraire This picture is about a ship that was fighting in the Battle of Trafalgar (England vs. Spain). Many people refer to this painting being called, “The Fighting Temeraire tugged to her last Berth to be broken up”. Sir Henry Newbolt spoke about this painting and said "And she's fading down the river, But in England's song for ever, She's the Fighting Téméraire."

5 Eugene Delacroix Delacroix was a French Romantic artist and later became the leader of the French Romantic School. He got a few ideas for his paintings Renaissance era. His most famous painting is, “Liberty Leading the People”. Delacroix was inspired by contemporary events to invoke the romantic image of the spirit of liberty.

8 The Third of May French forces invaded Spain in 1808, leading to the Peninsular War, (1808-1814).This painting shows that some of the Spanish who benefited from being Spaniards but refused to help their own land. The ones covering their faces are ashamed by refusing to help their own land any by surrendering.

9 The Family of Charles IV In this painting to royal family is paying a visit to Goya’s studio, in the back round you can see Goya painting the royal family portrait, so clearly the royal family is standing in front of a mirror.

13 Casper David Friedrich Friedrich was a German Romantic landscape artist. Most of his works were of nature, mostly night skies, misty mornings and gothic ruins. His most famous paintings are, “Cross on the Mountain” and “Wander in the Mist”.

14 Cross on the Mountains This painting was the first Christian altar piece to have landscape in it. It was also controversial because he placed Jesus in with wild nature alone.


16 Wander in the Mist Many people loved this painting because it brought them peace. It also shows that Friedrich was not only a gothic romanticist but was “natural” romanticist as well. (1817)


18 Henry Fuseli Fuseli was a Romanticism artist. His father was an artist as well and lead all of his children to be artist except Fuseli. His father wanted him to go into priest hood. He was later ordained but had gotten into trouble and was set free. Later he found himself painting again and became one of the best painters for Romanticism art.

19 The Nightmare

20 The “Nightmare was painted in 1781. Interpretation of “The Nightmare” have varied widely. The canvas seems to portray simultaneously a dreaming woman and the content of her nightmare. The Demon and the horse’s head refer to existing belief and folklore about nightmares. The sleeper seems lifeless and lying on her back, she takes a position believed to encourage nightmares. There is also a “The Nightmare II” that has the same moral to it but it shows that you can have the same nightmare more than once. The Nightmare II was painted in 1790.
