Romeo and Juliet by Sir Frank Dicksee Enlarge

Romeo and Juliet
(Frank Dicksee, 1884, Public domain)

Love and art

In art, love often manifests itself as an excited emotion which provokes passions and challenges reason. Yet it is a major theme in many disciplines, in particular literature and painting, through the works of artists often tormented by its uncountable and unpredictable labyrinths.

We see it sometimes as destructive and obsessive, and sometimes pure and chaste, while testifying to a profane, sacred, brotherly or conjugal love. A theme reuniting every period and nationality, it can be infinitely exploited. He has inspired magnificent stories which seem to scoff at the passage of time, such as "Romeo and Juliet" or "Tristan and Yseult".
