Time: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

The revolutions in Europe between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, accelerating social, political and economic changes, favor the birth of a new artistic movement, Romanticism, which places sentiment and love of country and that, detaching itself from the forms of Neoclassicism, proposes a style that shows the deep emotions of man, aroused by real life. In particular, in painting, historical subjects, scenes of popular life and patriotic struggle, the landscape as an expression of love for nature and orientalist subjects are imposed. To express emotions and feelings, we begin to use bright colors, the outlines are blurred, the contrasts of lights increase, to then progressively arrive at a painting, with the Macchiaioli first and then with the Impressionists, "en plein air", pure exaltation of emotions, chromatic effects, subjective impressions.

Artistic technique: Pittura

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
