"The fact remains that almost every element in what I may call the 'iconography of romanticism' was used by Goyawitches, tortures, shipwrecks, assassinations – the whole works; but used, of course, with incomparably greater skill and imaginative power than the horror-comics of the early nineteenth century."--The Romantic Rebellion (1973) by Kenneth Clark

The Romantic Rebellion (1973) is a book by Kenneth Clark on Romanticism in the arts.

In the book, Clark refers to the Parnassus fresco of Mengs as "insipid . . . fundamentally frivolous. It does not reflect life, but some vapid dream of connoisseurs and collectors."

The protagonists of the story are David, Piranesi, Fuseli, Goya, Ingres, Blake, Géricault, Delacroix, Turner, Constable, Millet, Degas and Rodin.
