The Watzmann - Caspar David Friedrich

In this painting, Caspar David Friedrich contrasts the human condition, symbolized by dark colors and a rugged terrain, with the divine summits, materialized by light colors and a majestic mountain. Man, confined to the dreary baseness of the earth, dreams of light, grandeur, purity and nobility, in the image of these snowy peaks. The cloudless sky evokes a world of quietude and peace, inaccessible although coveted by the common man.

The artist

Born in Greifswald, Germany, Caspar Friedrich (1774 - 1840), took drawing lessons from a municipal teacher before leaving for Denmark. He joined the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, from 1794 to 1798, to learn Antique and Classical art. He then moved to Dresden, a city in artistic effervescence, where his landscape drawings were highly appreciated. Friedrich even won a prize at the Weimar competition in 1804. He began to paint only in 1807, specializing in romantic landscapes. The artist acquired a solid reputation in the 1810s when his works were purchased by the King of Prussia. At that time he became a member of the Berlin Academy and the Dresden Academy. While his work became a fixture at the Russian Court, Friedrich suffered a stroke that partially paralyzed him and forced him to limit his productivity.
