The reinstallation of Romanticism in Gallery 205 focuses on this major artistic movement, which flourished in the early part of the 19th century. The Romantics embraced the importance of emotion and subjective feeling as a reaction against the belief in rational thought that had dominated Western reasoning since the Renaissance. This installation highlights the international range of Romanticism and includes richly colorful works from England, France, and Germany.
