The courant of Romanticism is one of the most effective and influential approaches in art history. As well as expressionism, romanticism is also an approach that has been influenced many various theories on aesthetics. For example many various theories which have been proposed on sublime of Pseudo Longinus, Nicholas Boileau, Edmund Burke and Emmanuel Kant are mainly demonstrating the principal characteristics as immensity, eternity and the sacred power of the nature.
