Step 3: After viewing the paintings write a 1.5 page reflection – discussing how these paintings depict elements of Romanticism. Use the information from the videos to analyze the paintings. You do not need to discuss every painting (there’s 9 so that would be asking a lot). In your reflection – conclude with which artist and/or painting speaks to you the most, and why.
