Caspar David Friedrich (1774–1840) is heralded because the maximum painter of the Romantic flow in Germany, and Europe’s first really glossy artist. His mysterious and depression landscapes, frequently peopled with lonely wanderers, are experiments in a substantially subjective inventive perspective—one within which, as Freidrich wrote, the painter depicts now not “what he sees sooner than him, yet what he sees inside of him.” This vulnerability of the person while faced with nature grew to become one of many key tenets of the Romantic aesthetic.

            Now to be had in a compact, obtainable structure, this fantastically illustrated booklet is the main finished account ever released in English of 1 of the main attention-grabbing and influential nineteenth-century painters.

            “This is a version of interpretative artwork historical past, taking in a great deal of German Romantic philosophy, yet based consistently at the fast event of the image. . . . it's infrequent to discover a pupil so evidently in sympathy along with his subject.”—Independent

Example text

Friedrich had designed it in sympathy with the architecture and atmosphere of its place of destination, which was to be a small private chapel in the Tetschen Castle. ’ Friedrich finally exhibited the work at home, in his atelier, to a flood of curious spectators. ’ This was the situation greeting the Cross in the Mountain’s first public: a landscape painting enframed like an icon, an easel replaced by a makeshift altar table, an artist’s atelier reconsecrated as a church. Not surprisingly, this simulacrum of the sacred elicited a mixed response.

Moreover, since it is never completed as object or event, and since indeed its completion would render it no longer Romantic, the art of Romanticism sets out partly to defy historical analysis. To reiterate, what is achieved by calling Friedrich’s landscapes romantic? Into what history can we inscribe his vision? In one of his Logological Fragments, Novalis formulates Romanticism actively, not as finished product but as future process, not as historical achievement but as imperative: The world must become romanticized.
