In Romantic art, nature was portrayed as uncontrollable, unpredictable, and created extreme conditions, and it offered an escape from the Enlightenment and industrialization. The powerful and aggressive images of nature created by Romantic artists, it contrasted the Neoclassical Ideas coming out of the French Revolution such as reason and order. Romanticism was shaped largely by artists trained in Jacques Louis David's studio. Interest in the individual was poised against eighteenth century realism, and paintings became symbols for expressing emotional states of the people. The poet, Charles Baudelaire wrote in 1846, "Romanticism is precisely situated neither in choice of subject nor in exact truth, but in a way of feeling."
