    One thought on “Neoclassicism and Romanticism

    1. Mary Rose

      I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Like the others in this series, it's a wonderful introduction to the period without getting too bogged down in Art History rhetoric or value judgement. Unfortunately, if you're looking for a book that will engage in in-depth analysis, this isn't the book for you, but it's a nice way to cover lots of artists so you get a broad, sweeping understanding of the movements, their sub-categories, and several of the artists that participated in it.
