Romanticism (the First Half of the 19th Century). The Pathos of Individualism

Keywords: the global artistic process, the main historical periods, Romanticism


The essence of the series of essays published by the journal is that with the maximum compactness of the presentation it provides a summary of the main phenomena of world artistic culture, covered in general both from the point of view of the overall historical process and in relation to the various forms of art (literature, fine arts, architecture, music, theater and cinema).  At the same time, there is a tendency to overcome the customary categorization of national schools and the division into separate forms of art with the genre specification inherent in each of them, which meets the positive trends of globalization and provides a holistic view of artistic phenomena. The following artistic and historical periods are examined in stages: the Ancient World, Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque Era, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Post-Romanticism, the First Modern Age I, the Second Modern Age, the Third Modern Age, the Post-Modern Age, and as an afterword — “The Golden age of Russian Artistic Culture”.
