Casper David Friedrich – The Essence of German Romanticism
Caspar David Friedrich (1774 – 1840) was a German landscape painter in the 19th century whose art has come to symbolize many of the attributes of the Romantic Movement. His symbolic landscapes reflect his feelings about man’s relationship with nature, life cycles, as well as his own personal spiritual experiences with life.
Our set of Caspar David Friedrich patterns includes many that contain the allegorical symbols used in his Romantic visions: sun and moon, mountains, rivers, icy seas, trees, ravines, fog, snow, clouds, churches and crosses, graveyards, and various animals (swans, ravens). We’ve include many of his most recognized works including Swans in the Reeds, The Cross in the Mountains, The Tree of Crows, On the Sailboat, Chalk Cliffs on Rügen, The Life Stages, and In Memory of the Riesengebirge.
