The Turner Hall is one of the halls of the Lovian Museum for Modern Art in Newhaven. The art collection is European, American and Libertan romanticism.

Romanticism Edit

The first hall is named after William Turner, a well known Libertan artist who was one of the main caracters of the Romantic movement. This movement was established in the middle of the 18th century in Western Europe, and gained strength during the Industrial Revolution. It was partly a revolt against aristocratic, social, and political norms of the Enlightenment period and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature in art and literature. The movement stressed strong emotion as a source of experience.

Many intellectual historians have seen Romanticism as a key movement in the Counter-Enlightenment, a reaction against the Age of Enlightenment. Whereas the thinkers of the Enlightenment emphasized the primacy of deductive reason, Romanticism emphasized intuition, imagination, and feeling, to a point that has led to some Romantic thinkers being accused of irrationalism. Also, nature, solitude and mystery form themes in the romantic works.

My favorite kind of art!

Mine as well, that's a coincidence!

This isn't art. This is just a pseudo realistic style, invented because of the lack of photoshop and cameras. Real art is fed by the wonders of expressionism.
