What is a typical romantic image for you? Someone finds it in a serene landscape. Another sees it in a lovely couple or finds it in a threatening sky. Everyone has a different look on Romanticism.

Do you like photography and do you use Instagram often? Join the Photo Contest #OokRomantiek. You can win a sleepover for two in the Groninger Museum on Valentine’s day!

What to do?
Share your picture that answers the question ‘’What’s Romanticism for you?’’ between 8 – 15 December 2017 and add the hashtag #OokRomantiek.
If your inspiration is nowhere to be found, we advise you to come and visit the exhibition Romanticism in the North – from Friedrich to Turner. Dramatic scenes of raging seas, imposing mountains and erupting volcanoes alternate with quiet moonlit nights and peaceful fields where lonely figures pause to rest. This is the first international overview of Romantic paintings with beautiful works from the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia and Great Britain.

#Instameet on December 8th
