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.
