Running concurrently with Neoclassicism was Romanticism. These two styles/theories about art couldn’t have been more different. The Romanticists, lead by Delacroix, were passionate and their work reflected it. Delacroix painted scenes from the French Revolution, the war between the Greeks and the Turks and mythical scenes full of drama and action.
