Name the two major changes that affected european art in the eighteenth century.
My art book doesn't exactly point out or focus on two changes. I would go with the French Revolution, but I'm not sure what the other change would be. After it talks about artists getting caught up in the French Revolution, it also mentions "the subsequent reign of Napoleon as emperor of France," referring that as another event that caught artists' attention. Would these most likely be the major changes that they're talking about, or something else? I searched up a little bit and got information that stated the two major changes were Neoclassicism and Romanticism. But as far as new art styles that formed in this period, they're not the only ones. There's also Rococo and Realism. So I don't know about that.
I appreciate the help.

Romanticism followed Napoleon. During his reign, especially the first years, look up Empire Art
Now leading up to the Louis 1V then the Revolution, and it hung around for awhile... NeoClassism http://www.oxfordartonline.com/public/page/themes/neoclassicismandthefrenchrevolution
