Gothic Romantic Inspired Art

Art that has been influenced by the Gothic Romantic style often has in common the idealisation of love, beautiful historical landscapes, ruined castles and the depiction of  romantic death. A common ideal behind this kind of art is the reaction to the perceived ugliness of the modern world of wars, machines, consumerism and mass production.
The reverence for the past and the idealisation of a haunted or dreamlike landscape is evident in such artists as John Waterhouse, the vivid water colours of
Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the exquisite fabrics and other works of William Morris.
