Post-romanticism or Postromanticism refers to a range of cultural products and attitudes emerging in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, after the period of Romanticism.

Herman Melville and Thomas Carlyle are post-Romantic writers. Flaubert's Madame Bovary is a post-Romantic novel. The period of post-romanticism in poetry is defined as the late nineteenth century, and includes the poetry of Tennyson.

In the early twenty-first century Leonardo Pereznieto and writer Claudia Moscovici founded an artistic movement called post-romanticism. A post-romantic art exhibition was held at the Florence Biennale in 2005.

Human life is rich with emotion, creativity, suffering and passion. In focusing on the subjects of love and artistic creation, Romanticism captured our imagination more than any other culture movement.

Yet all too often this intensity took the abstract form of love, leading from the human to the divine and from man to an ethereal, other-worldly muse. Post-romanticism brings passion back to earth; finds beauty, sensuality and meaning in our daily, real and contingent lives, and places women, side by side to men, at the center of a mutual artistic inspiration and creation. features the work of contemporary artists who celebrate the beauty of romanticism and perpetuate and transform its legacy in their own paintings, sculptures, photography and poetry.
