Neoclassicism as an aesthetic trend Automatic translate
National romance is characterized by its own circle of legendary heroic and lyrical images, as well as an extremely wide appeal to folklore and a desire for the synthesis of arts.
National romanticism in all countries gravitated to illustrations of folk epos and fairy tales. In Norway, this is inherent in the work of E. Verenshell and T. Kittelsen. Ancient folklore legends were embodied in the paintings of Swedish artists - I. Arosenius and E. Youssefson. A lot of works by the Finnish artist A. Gallen-Kallela were written on the themes of the epic Kalevala. The creativity of all these painters is united by a predetermined “national idea”, glorifying the mighty and heroic ancestors. In Switzerland, the founder of national romance was F. Hodler. Genre motifs prevail in the painting of the Spaniard I. Suloagi, whose paintings are inhabited by toreros and chitans. The art of the national historical landscape is also being formed. The singer of his native Flanders was W. de Sadeler. Fairy-tale and epic landscape compositions were created by Lithuanian M.K. Čiurlionis.

Neoclassicism as an aesthetic trend and artistic mentality periodically in certain circumstances becomes the most popular or fashionable. The authority of classical art was used for a variety of purposes, ranging from the spread of humanistic ideas and ending with their mass suppression in totalitarian and authoritarian societies.
Initially, neoclassic opposed the established classical academic models with their abstract normative ideals. The neoclassical ideal motifs are filled with love of life, which is clearly manifested in such paintings as, for example, “Bathers” by P. Cezanne and O. Renoir. A new understanding of antiquity is also noted in sculpture. French sculptors A. Mayol and A. Bourdelle, inspired by the harmony of high classics, give her vitality and expression.
