Event Description:
THE ROMANTIC ERA
 
Juli Sibley, 6 sessions, Tuesday, July 10 - August 14, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
 
From 1789-1865, change swept across Europe and the United States, as new inventions in the areas of communications, travel developments, and industrial capabilities forever altered the ways people had lived for centuries. Against this backdrop, artists, musicians, and writers saw that Nature was the greatest teacher, and ideally was what defined the center of culture.  The Romantic Movement sought to broaden the understanding of human experience and to recognize the beauty and power of human emotion and imagination.  Visit or revisit the writings of Wordsworth and Emerson. Hear about Beethoven. See J. M. W. Turner, Francisco Goya, and other creative souls express Beauty and record their experiences  in the midst of the sometime destructive forces of industrialization and imperialism. 
"I am the lover of uncontained and immortal beauty."  Emerson
