Considered one of the most important figures in German art ofthe nineteenth century, Caspar David Friedrich is best knownfor his dramatic and emotional paintings, which often featurecontemplative figures, sweeping landscapes, and an emphasison the sublime and the spiritual.

This book takes a chronologicalapproach to Friedrich's career, beginning with his early yearsproducing traditional religious and historical scenes.

It exploreshis innovative use of light and color, and his unprecedentedtreatment of the landscape as a living, dynamic entity, rather thansimply as a backdrop or setting for other subjects. The beautifully reproduced works and details in this volume helpreaders appreciate the astounding qualities of Friedrich's works:his palette of muted, atmospheric colors; swirling clouds, dramaticmountains, and turbulent seas; and subtle changes in light andshadow that occur throughout the day.
