Caspar David Friedrich remained closely connected to Greifswald, the place of his birth, childhood and youth, throughout his life. Two of the most impressive testimonies to this are the paintings "Wiesen bei Greifswald" from the Hamburger Kunsthalle and "Greifswalder Hafen" from the Alte Nationalgalerie Berlin. In 2024, the painting will return to the Baltic Sea and will be the focus of the special exhibition concluding the anniversary year, which will highlight Friedrich's connection to his "home town". The presentation is complemented by preparatory drawings, city views by his contemporaries and a spatial collage by artist Cindy Schmid exploring Friedrich's meadow landscape. Free admission Under the patronage of Dr. Stefan Fassbinder, Lord Mayor of the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald.
