Romanticism Still the same today or different?

When you google romanticism they define it as a movement in the arts and literature that originated in the late 18th century, emphasizing inspiration, subjectivity, and the primary of the individual. Romanticism has influenced history because it was a major international movement that helped influence and shape modern views of literature, music, as well as art. Romanticism has definitely changed over time, romanticism in the 1800s is not the same as it is today.

One thing I would like to particularly focus on is the change of art over the years. In the 1800s, romanticism was popular within art. Romanticism in the form of art was mostly paintings. The inspirations of paintings came from nature around them. Besides nature, they also received their inspiration from the bible, mythological, as well as supernatural subjects. Besides focusing on these subjects, romantic artist used radiant vibrant colors and enjoyed playing with shapes and curving lines.

Today, romantic artist our still relevant and creating more in depth pieces of art. Today's artist are able to use more inspirations around them. With this inspiration they can create more diverse in depth pieces using of art using different forms of brushing techniques and different shapes.

I truly do believe that romanticism is still alive today. I believe that the basic principles of romanticism have been lost but it is definitely still alive and in full effect today.
