Romanticism was a movement in art and literature of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries that emphasised personal experience, feeling and emotion, particularly in response to nature. Eugène Delacroix, although he rejected the term, was the leading French Romantic painter. John Constable and Joseph Mallord William Turner are the best-known British Romantic artists of the period.
