The End of the Quest" (1921). By Frank Dicksee (1853–1928). @lagra _art Oil on canvas, 144.7 x 106.7 cm. 📍Leighton House Museum . The man holds the woman on her both hands and seems to be saying something emotional. What is not clear is whether the man is returning from foreign war all state assignment that may have kept them apart for long or he is an ex-heart-breaker who has returned after realising the value of the woman he left behind. The facial expression of the two shows a connection between them, but the despair and suffering on the young man's face show that they must have separated for a while. The woman doesn't look directly to the man's eye suggests that she may have lost hope for reunion, but her calmness shows a willingness to accept the young man's proposal. The style used in the painting is romanticism. Romanticism as a form of art started in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth century as a revolt against Neoclassicism. The movement was purely a rejection of the precepts of rationality, idealisation of at the time through the disregard of the formal rules and traditional procedures in art. Romanticism gave artists the freedom of imagination and emotion in their work. Most of the romantic paintings were about nature and humans as part of nature. #lagra _art #contemporaryart #historyofart #artgallery #arthistory #arte #ancientart #helenoftroy #ancientgreece #painting #artlovers #dailypainting #oilpainting #mythology #myth #history ry #mythologie #masterpiece #greek #ancientart #19thcentury #drawing #portrait #contemporaryartist #academicart #artwork #walkerartgallery #beautiful #classicart #artlover #impressionistart
