Considered one of the most important figures in German art of

the nineteenth century, Caspar David Friedrich is best known

for his dramatic and emotional paintings, which often feature

contemplative figures, sweeping landscapes, and an emphasis

on the sublime and the spiritual. This book takes a chronological

approach to Friedrich’s career, beginning with his early years

producing traditional religious and historical scenes. It explores

his innovative use of light and color, and his unprecedented

treatment of the landscape as a living, dynamic entity, rather than

simply as a backdrop or setting for other subjects.

The beautifully reproduced works and details in this volume help

readers appreciate the astounding qualities of Friedrich’s works:

his palette of muted, atmospheric colors; swirling clouds, dramatic

mountains, and turbulent seas; and subtle changes in light and

shadow that occur throughout the day. Readers will come away

with a renewed appreciation for Friedrich’s portrayals of the

natural world and the unique and provocatively emotive qualities

of his work.
