ReadymadeTerm for an object chosen by the artist from a different context, e.g. a vacuum cleaner or an advertising image, and incorporated into an art context. If altered or added new elements the object or image is referred to as an 'assisted readymade'.
Readymades have been a staple of twentieth century art – primarily in the art that seeks to interact with or comment on the surrounding society.
In 1917 the French artist Marcel Duchamp tried to exhibit a urinal, turned over and signed – art history's first attempt to exhibit a ready-made.

Epoch in the European culture history which reached its zenith around 1800. From the adjective romantic. In origin the word means exotic, something different from reality. It is often associated with longing and love.
Romanticism is regarded as a multifarious reaction to a world which was influenced both by religion and the rational outlook of the Enlightenment.
The pictorial art is distinguished by a rejection of Enlightenment's
predilection for reason, instead supplanted by an interest in the Middle Ages. One centre of gravity is the landscape painting with lyrical-abstract qualities marked by a (Christian) sensitivity and empathy.
One of the most prominent Romantics is the German painter Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840).
