During the early nineteenth century John Constable was known for his great artistry across Europe. His interest and love for paint began in 1799 when Constable convinced his father into letting him attend the Royal Academy School to pursue art - his passion as a romantic artist was in landscapes. His style, brushstroke techniques and eye for detail, progressed over the years but he remained true to his passion of capturing nature and the beautiful world that surrounded him. It is refreshing to see the freshness of light, touch, and colour carry on through his entire body of work. When studying the paintings and their compositions, one can note the similarities between Constable’s works of nature and landscapes and the written words of William Wordsworth, a poet during that time who was also an acquaintance of Constable.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses thousands of paintings that preserve the rich cultures of some the most influential historical movements. Romanticism was one of the most profound artistic movements. As a response to the Enlightenment, Romanticism emerged as an artistic movement that validated the experience of intense emotion—with a particular emphasize on the compelling forces of nature and the sublime. (In examining excerpts from The Sublime and The Beautiful, a work by Edmund Burke, one can define the sublime as excitement, pain, fear, horror, or terror). Artists of the Romantic Movement were obligated to encourage their audience to indulge in an array of emotions and to relish nature.
In order to produce his captivating landscapes pieces, Monet took advantage of the nature that surrounded him, ultimately allowing him to produce his awe-inspiring pieces. Monet was able to succeed in his mission in becoming one of the greatest painters in history by producing nature inspired landscape scenes such as Red Boats, Argenteuil, Arrival of the Normandy Train, the Magpie, the Train in the Countryside, and the Riverbank at Petit-Gennevilliers, Sunset.
