This spring weíll stay at the historic country house Jagtlust. The house, the garden and the former inhabitants are imbued with the Romantic principles. The ideological values of the present owner, Natuurmonumenten, are also derived from Romanticism. The title of the exhibition refers to M.H. Abramsí book about Romantic Theory and the Critical Tradition. ďUntil the Romantic era, the mind was like a mirror, reflecting the real world. For the Romantics it was more like a lamp, the light of the artists inner soul poured out to illuminate the worldĒ. Here lies the origin of the conflict caused by Romantic notions of authenticity and artistic genius.
