Event to mark the 250th birthday of Caspar David Friedrich. Under the direction of art historian Dr. Birgit Poppe, who recently published the book "Die Frau am Fenster - Ein Leben an der Seite von Caspar David Friedrich" (Gmeiner Verlag), we will explore the romantic painter's relationship with women using a number of motifs in a joint discussion.

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840), who was born in Greifswald and lived most of his life in Dresden, is the most famous artist of the Romantic period. Less well known, however, are the women from his circle, whom the painter only rarely immortalized in his works. These include the prints of his female relatives from his native Vorpommern and some paintings of the ladies who shaped his life, especially in the Elbe city of Dresden. There, Friedrich had contact with the artist Caroline Bardua from the Harz Mountains, who in turn produced important portraits of him, as well as with her colleague Louise Seidler, who also lobbied Goethe for the unusual landscape painter in Weimar. However, the greatest influence on Friedrich was his wife, Caroline Bommer from Dresden, whose great love and colorful family life with three children profoundly changed his life. He took several pictures of his "Line" in the Dresden apartment, as well as on their honeymoon to Greifswald and Rügen.
