April 6Art as “Idea”:  The Romantic, Pre-Raphaelite, and Realist Painters

This final season of 18th-19th centuries is named after the most influential world leader of the time, Queen Victoria. The era is not unlike the creative expansion in thought and art during the Italian Renaissance. However, the Industrial Revolution sparked responses to poverty, social ills, and injustices. Art became a vital platform for messages—the foundation of modern art.
