A collection under the sign of Romanticism and Impressionism.
Romanticism is a cultural-historical epoch that lasted from the end of the 18th century until well into the 19th century and expressed itself particularly in the fields of fine arts, literature and music. The essential characteristic of Romanticism is an emphasis on the spontaneity of the subject that stems from the idealistic tradition. Impressionism broke with many rules of painting practice. Contrary to academic doctrine, colour was elevated to the primary means of design. The elements of drawing receded into the background. The statement of the picture is relative with regard to the colour as well as the graphic form of the section of reality, since it depends on the person seeing and the person painting. In Impressionism, the open shape of the picture is emphasised as a section of space and time, with figures even being cut into. The relativity of the picture and the open form motivate the viewer to his or her own visual performance, sensations and cooperation in the creation of the picture’s form and its message. The individual picture loses its compellingly valid, instructive character for every viewer. Japan’s influences on the various currents of Impressionism can be seen in the introduction of new objects as well as clothing, but also in a new way of depicting dimensions, light and shadow conditions as well as perspectives.

The view is directed to a field. The sun is setting. The brush is held by an Impressionist, who returned to a freer style of painting, which allowed him to more quickly capture momentary light and weather conditions.
In the paintings of the Impressionists, visible reality loses its physicality and material quality and becomes a mere appearance, an ‘impression’.
