Summary

Caspar David Friedrich: The Art of Drawing is dedicated to works on paper by the German Romantic artist (1774-1840) and offers a revealing perspective on the function of drawing in his creative process while also making apparent the substantive beauty of his works. Chosen from among major European museums and private collections most of which have rarely been exhibited these works of delicate beauty, meticulously rendered en plein air, were subsequently utilized by the artist as components of a modern system of pictorial architecture with which he constructed, far from nature in his studio the sublime landscapes that have made him the most celebrated painter of German Romanticism. The nearly 70 works by Friedrich reunited here executed in pencil, gouache and watercolor range from studies realized en plein air to finished works and are organized according to recurring themes in his oeuvre architecture, ruins, mountains, trees and plants, among others.
