(An artistic movement)

This movement is a subcategory of Romanticism

Dates: 1809-1850

German Romantic painters settled in Rome who regarded the art since 1500 as degenerate and pagan. They favoured instead works produced during the Early Renaissance; so their paintings looks deliberately old-fashioned, with a focus on Christian and German subjects.
