The Sacralization of Nature in German Romantic Landscape
Led by Dr. Dennis Raverty
Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840), "Woman Before the Rising Sun,"
Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany
In the early nineteenth century, Philipp Otto Runge and Casper David Friedrich transformed and elevated landscape painting from the minor genre it had been up to that point, to the bearer of the kind of serious and sublime content that had formerly been reserved for biblical or mythological subjects alone. Explore how these artists redefined the sacred in terms of implied narrative within their landscapes and their evocation of light as a metaphor for the divine presence in nature.
