as part of the lecture series "Talking about Friedrich"

In his lecture, Christian Scholl (Institute of Fine Arts and Art Studies, University of Hildesheim) will examine the presentation at the "Centennial Exhibition of German Art" held in the Berlin National Gallery in 1906. It marked a turning point in the evaluation of Caspar David Friedrich. Although his landscape painting had by no means been completely forgotten in the previous decades, it was regarded as an art-historical aberration. Now, however, it seemed to offer an alternative to the now critically viewed "official" art of the 19th century - and a level that at least seemed to come close to the admired French painting of the time. The lecture deals with the foundations and motifs of this re-evaluation around 1900, when a new fascination for the formal-aesthetic qualities of Friedrich's paintings developed under the auspices of modernism. Moderator: Prof. Dr. Kilian Heck With Caspar David Friedrich through the year 2024 - We are there!
