Synopsis: "Splendid monograph, the first of major proportions in nearly thirty years .ever thoughtful, opening the door to Friedrich's world that much wider."Chicago Tribune

Werner Hofmann vividly demonstrates Caspar David Friedrich's extraordinary ability to reproduce the natural world in faithful detail, while at the same time imbuing it with spiritual and religious significance. Caught between the near and the distant, the finite and the infinite, his human figures find a space in which to engage in the thoughtful contemplation of nature and the divine.

Carefully placing the artist in a wider context, Hofmann examines contemporary judgments and influences on Friedrich's work. The beautiful illustrations include many of Friedrich's drawings and watercolors as well as over ninety of his works in oils. 193 illustrations, 150 in color.

About the Author: Werner Hofmann was born in Vienna. He was Director of the Kunsthalle, Hamburg, from 1969 to 1990 and has also held guest professorships at Berkeley, Columbia and Harvard universities. He has published numerous books on the art of the 19th and 20th centuries.
