Descriptions du produit

Caspar David Friedrich (1774 1840), the greatest painter of the Romantic movement in Germany, was perhaps Europe's first truly modern artist. His melancholy landscapes, often peopled by lonely wanderers, represent experiments towards a radically subjective art, one in which, as Friedrich wrote, the painter depicts not what he sees before him, but what he sees within him. Yet in their awesome power to capture the individuality of visible forms Friedrich's pictures also accept and express the irredeemable otherness of Nature. Winner of the 1992 Mitchell Prize for the History of Art, this compelling and highly original book is now made available in a compact pocket format. Beautifully illustrated, "Caspar David Friedrich and the Subject of Landscape" is the most comprehensive account ever published in English on this most fascinating of nineteenth-century masters.

A Portrait of the Invisible 3 septembre 2001
Par "moe_d_anglais" - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Koerner has written a philosophical masterpiece in the form of an art book. Caspar David Friedrich is one of the most complex and thought-provoking of nineteenth-century artists, whose whose exploration of perception shows up in his most mundane paintings as well as his most grandiose.
Koerner shows us how even a painting of something as simple as a bushy thicket in the snow contains many subtle contradictions and complexities that baffle the eye as we examine it more closely. The apparent simplicity and underlying intensity of many of his works is similar to that of Edward Hopper, on whom he seems to have been a major influence (and this book bears comparison with Kranzfelder's "Hopper").
Friedrich specialized in painting the human figure seen from behind (rueckenfigur), and this ties in with sense of nostalgia that is a major component of his art. A really notable example of this is "Abbey Graveyard under Snow", a painting of a ruined mediaeval monastery with a spectral procession of monks from a bygone age; this painting was destroyed by bombing in 1945 and exists only in reproduction - a ghostly painting of ghosts.
Koerner's dense prose is heavy going, but well worth the effort because it contains so much; the author evidently has a thorough grounding in philosophy as well as a great sympathy for his subject.
The last chapter is entitled "deja vu", and this sums up one of the main feelings aroused by this art. The last sentence is worth quoting:
"And it arrests you on the Dresden heath, before the thicket in winter, when what you thought were just alders in the snow are fragments of your darkest history".

masterful work of art history 31 mai 2014

Extraordinary work of scholarship and criticism, not only placing Friedrich in the context of German Romanticism, but revealing how the very structure of his paintings reveal this connection. One of the finest works of art history I have read

Clever and rich. I love illustrations too, but the text is outstanding. This is a gem in the dry art history field.

Best book so far 26 mai 2010
Par Brad Teare - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The best reproduction in this book is on the cover, Large Enclosure, one of Friedrich's finest paintings. The interior illustrations tend to be small on the page. There are 64 color illustrations most of which are quite small at 6.25" x 4.5" on an 11" x 8.5" page. The text is readable and gives quite a lot of background information. There are black and white reproductions sprinkled throughout which convey an idea of Friedrich's compositions and use of values.

I am still looking for the definitive book of Friedrich's paintings so until then this book will have to do.

Not really useful to me, too descriptive. Maybe I should read it once more
