 From Friedrich to Richter (Getty Center Exhibitions)
It explores several recurring themes found throughout German art from 1800 to the present: Romanticism and the sublime, the relationship between German art and that produced elsewhere in Europe, the connection between history and art in Germany, and the role of Dresden in the development of German art.
Rather than drawing a direct line of influence from Friedrich to Richter, or arguing that both artists demonstrate inherently German characteristics, this exhibition suggests the artists' similar approaches to landscape.

 Book Review: Koerner's "Caspar David Friedrich and the Subject of Landscape"
Friedrich's "empty" canvases are seen by Koerner in socio-historical as well as art-historical terms: as a reflection of the artist's own spirit in touch with the political moment, but also as an expression of contemporary views on the very nature of art and art criticism.
Using Ramdohr's censorious 1809 critique of Friedrich's work as a springboard, Koerner shows that the classicistic approach to viewing art was able to point out the peculiarities and "failings" of Friedrich's art according to traditional standards, but was unable to embrace these aesthetic differences as the source of Friedrich's uniquely appealing character.
Certainly a full-fledged examination of Friedrich's portrayal of women (and men) is beyond the scope of Koerner's argument, and in fact has little to do with most of his examples, but in certain situations it seems as though he is begging the question and never answering it.

 Caspar David Friedrich
Having been virtually forgotten in his lifetime, Caspar David Friedrich was rediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century and is now regarded as the most important German Romantic painter.
This was illustrated, inter alia, by the large Caspar David Friedrich exhibition held in 1972 at the Tate Gallery in London, smaller shows at the Metropolitan Museum in New York in 1991 and 2002, and the 1992 exhibition at the Prado in Madrid.
This primarily relates to the issue of pictorial invention in Friedrich’s art –; in terms of the fictitiousness of his depictions of nature, which combine realistic detail with abstract composition.

Friedrich's landscapes are based entirely on those of northern Germany and are beautiful renderings of trees, hills, harbors, morning mists, and other light effects based on a close observation of nature.
Friedrich painted several other important compositions in which crosses dominate a landscape.
For example, a landscape showing a ruined abbey in the snow, Abbey with Oak Trees (1810; Schloss Charlottenburg, Berlin), can be appreciated on one level as a bleak, winter scene, but the painter also intended the composition to represent both the church shaken by the Reformation and the transitoriness of earthly things.

Accompanied by large and beautiful reproductions of Friedrich's paintings and drawings (193 illustrations, 150 in color), Hofmann's text places Friedrich within the wider context of his time, offering comparisons with other artists, commentary from critics such as Goethe, and coverage of the social, political, and religious tides of 19th-century Europe.
Hofmann believes that Freidrich's major achievement is the development of "landscape as icon," that is, Friedrich's ability to depict the natural world in realistic detail while imbuing it with religious and spiritual importance.
Selections from Friedrich's letters are a neat fit, bowing to the idea that his transcendental painting ultimately eludes scholarly discourse.
