The period between 1750 and the end of the 19th century was a time of upheaval. Industrialization in England, the French Revolution, Napoleon, and the formation of states in Germany and Italy are just a few historical events that define this period. All these developments were also reflected in European painting: from the rediscovery of antiquity in classicism, through Romanticism with its various national forms, to realism, which discovered completely new themes for art. Containing more than 500 works, this volume is an overview of the most important paintings of these and other styles of this exciting epoch.
