Caspar David Friedrich: Art for a New Age (until Apr 1) is the first in a series of exhibitions in Germany (others are planned in Berlin and Dresden) celebrating the foremost German Romantic painter on the 250th anniversary of his birth. The most comprehensive show in many years devoted to Friedrich’s work, it features over 60 paintings, including a number of iconic works, as well as around 100 drawings and selected works by his artist friends. Friedrich (1774-1840) evoked in his landscapes a new relationship between people and nature, a topical point of view in this age of climate change. A separate section looks at his influence on contemporary art through works by some 20 German and international artists in various genres and media on Friedrich’s central theme: how we deal with our environment.
