As an artistic movement, Romanticism declined from the 1850s but its influence lives on in the works of JMW Turner, John Constable, Goya and Eugène Delacroix. An accessible and in-depth guide to some of the most popular and significant art movements, Inside Art Movements explores their origins, evolution and legacy in today's world.For readers aged 9 and up.
