Romanticism - an artistic and literary movement lasting for approximately one hundred years (1760-1870) that emphasized emotion, individualism, free thought, and the spirit of nature. The movement was a reaction against the Age of Reason, Neoclassicism, and the technological horrors of the Industrial Revolution. Romantics appreciated Franklin's glass harmonica for its ethereal and spiritual qualities.
