    Johann Martin von Rohden received the commission to paint Southern Nature in her Abundant and Majestic Splendor, [4] while the commission for Northern Nature in the whole of her Terrifying Beauty [5] fell to Friedrich. The artist's happiness soon faded as he became "obsessed" with the afterlife. Does anyone have this in their references? Ersalo talk3 May UTC You're looking at a different portrait and caption than the original poster a year and a half laterbut you're right, it is confusing.

    This whole thing could be a long article unto its self, and we should definatly consider it. The low sun may be rising or setting; its five stylized rays travel upward, and one creates a gleam on Christ, suggesting a metal sculpture. Oil on board, 80 x cm, Staatliche Museen, Berlin Turner likely saw Friedrick's work during visits to Germany, but likely that that was it. There are noticeable thematic shifts in the works he produced during these episodes, which see the emergence of such motifs and symbols as vultures, owls, graveyards and ruins.

    Nash described the image as a sea, even suggesting that the jagged forms were not metal but ice. I'm not sure where else it would work, either. Shelves: artthinkingcapphilosophy Isaiah Berlin, in his Mellon Lectures on The Roots of Romanticismsaid that Romanticism "seems to me to be the greatest single shift in the consciousness of the West that has occurred," influencing every major "shift" of the two centuries that followed. For now, sould we create a sepreate critical "openion section" in the existing article, as apposed to artistic influence? I'm no Friedrich expert, but something about the way this is all written makes me dubious. With the inclusion of people, the overall tone of Friedrich's work during this time had a new sense of levity and a brighter palette.

Caspar David Friedrich book

This is more commentary on and analysis of his early years, and I don't think it quite works in this section, which I believe is mainly descriptive of his early years. In general, the article seems like it was written initially by a non-native English speaker and needs further cleanup.

His final "black painting", Seashore by Moonlight, is described by William Vaughan as the "darkest of all his shorelines. If true, it contradicts the concurrent neglect of his reputation in Germany, and begs the question as to how his work would have been known in the U.

Lithoderm talk19 November UTC Upon further consideration, I am even more convinced that it would be best as a subpage, so that the viewer can pull it up and look at the timeline and the list of works side by side When you hit in the list, there are five paintings that feature large figures of women prominently, while none had before.

As the art historian William Vaughan has observed, however, "He can see himself as a man greatly changed. Otherwise, his pictures will be like those folding screens behind which one expects to find only the sick or the dead.

Although, I'm not sure that it fits in the legacy section, either, it being devoted to the influence and impact of his art, rather than analysis of his interior life The art historian concludes, "Just as Cross in the Mountains constitutes a revolution in landscape painting, its Romantic defense signals a revolution in the language and practice of art criticism".

A painter and draughtsman, Friedrich is best known for his later allegorical landscapes, which feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees, and Gothic ruins.

The' cross in the mountains' had previously been mentioned under both life and work, but by two different titles. Four years later Friedrich entered the prestigious Academy of Copenhagenwhere he began his education by making copies of casts from antique sculptures before proceeding to drawing from life.

Beyond here, the pervading fog stretches out indefinitely, eventually commingling with the horizon and becoming indistinguishable from the cloud-filled sky.

The Stages of Life is a meditation on the artist's own mortality, depicting five ships at various distances from the shore. Johnbod talk19 November UTC It's not just that; artists talk about other artists and ideas floating around and circulate amongst active creative people, like today clearly the connection between the Romantic painters is more than just coincidence.
