GERMAN ROMANTIC LANDSCAPES

The group of drawings presented in the link below all date from the first half of the 19th century and show, in a variety of ways, how German artists perceived landscape. The different approaches range from a precise, tenderly drawn observation (Olivier) and a dynamic plein-air study (Fries) to works that pay close attention to architectural and archeological details (Hauschild and Alvenleben) as well as to a timeless evocation of the mythical world of Homer (Preller).
