Caspar David Friedrich (17741840), the greatest painter of the Romantic
movement in Germany, was perhaps Europes first truly modern artist. His
melancholy landscapes, often peopled by lonely wanderers, represent experiments
towards a radically subjective art. In this compelling and highly original book, winner of the 1992 Mitchell Prize for the History of Art, now made available in a compact pocket format, Joseph Leo Koerner analyses Friedrichs art as it emerges out of and partly reorientates a subjectivist aesthetic.
