Praise

“The sumptuously illustrated Caspar David Friedrich…is a good guide to one of the major artists of the Romantic era.” —Tulsa World
“Luxuriant.” —The Huffington Post
“[Friedrich’s] haunting and mysterious canvases are beautifully reproduced by Prestel in Caspar David Friedrich.” – Publishers Weekly
“Caspar David Freidrich stands out, primarily for its size and lavish reproductions…of paintings, drawings and prints by this great German Romantic. It conveys a fuller sense of Friedrich’s enigmatic, landscape-centered art than any single museum or exhibition could possibly provide.” – The New York Times
“[B]y far the most sumptuous and historically informed text [on Friedrich]. Building on the insights of previous critics and scholars, Grave skillfully assesses Friedrich’s canvases (reproduced here more beautifully than in any previous book), but his greater achievement is authoritatively placing Friedrich’s work in its cultural, intellectual, and aesthetic context.” – The Atlantic
