The 19th century liked to look back and it did so romanitcally, leaving aside the rather uncomfortable realities of the past and seeing it all through rose-tinted specs. The favourite periods were medieval and renaissance. The pre-raphealite and arts-and-crafts movements and even some art nouveau or jugendstill belong in this section.
