The Romantic period sought to project passion and heroics, and the Impressionist movement sought to project what was felt in the general moment the painting was created.

Vigée-Lebrun probably used lines in a similar way limiting her own personal style in her portrait. On the other hand, Delacroix uses lines to show his nature and style of art.
