Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (1818) by Caspar David Friedrich, Kunsthalle Hamburg, Northern Germany. Friedrich (1774 - 1840) was a German Romantic landscape painter, generally considered the most important German artist of his generation. He’s best known for his mid-period allegorical landscapes which typically feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees or Gothic ruins. His primary interest was the contemplation of nature - his often symbolic and anti-classical work seeks to convey a subjective, emotional response to the natural world. His paintings characteristically set a human presence in diminished perspective amid expansive landscapes, reducing the figures to a scale that, according to the art historian Christopher John Murray, directs “the viewer’s gaze towards their metaphysical dimension”. 

Friedrich was born in the Pomeranian town of Greifswald at the Ostsee (Baltic Sea), where he began his art studies very young. He studied in Copenhagen, Denmark until 1798, before settling in Dresden, Germany. He came of age during a period when, across Europe, a growing disillusionment with materialistic society was giving rise to a new appreciation of spirituality. As Germany moved towards modernization in the late 1800′s, a new sense of urgency characterized its art, and his contemplative depictions of stillness came to be seen as the products of a bygone era. The early 1900′s brought a renewed appreciation of his work, beginning in 1906 with an exhibition of 32 of his paintings and sculptures in Berlin. By the 1920s his art had been discovered by the Expressionists; in the 1930s and early 40s Surrealists and Existentialists frequently drew ideas from his work. The rise of Nazism in the early 1930s again saw a resurgence in Friedrich’s popularity, but this was followed by a sharp decline as his paintings were, by association with the Nazi movement, interpreted as having a nationalistic aspect. It was not until the late 1970s that he regained his reputation as an icon of the German Romantic movement and a painter of international importance.

If you’re going to make good art, it’s likely that you’re going to go to the place where things are dark, and use that to shine light into your life and, if you’re doing it right, into other people’s lives as well.
—  Neil Gaiman (Los Angeles Times interview)

People of Germany: Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was a painter, printmaker, and theorist of the German Renaissance. Born in Nürnberg, Dürer established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his 20’s, due to his high-quality woodcut prints. He was in communication with the major Italian artists of his time, including Raphael, Giovanni Bellini, and Leonardo da Vinci, and from 1512 he was patronized by emperor Maximilian I.

His vast body of work includes engravings, altarpieces, portraits, and self-portraits, watercolors, and books. The woodcuts, such as the Apocalypse series (1498), retain a more Gothic flavor than the rest of his work. His well-known engravings include the Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolors also mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionized the potential of that medium. His introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists, has secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatises, which involve principles of mathematics, perspective, and ideal proportions.

anonymous asked:

What makes Rothko's art so great?

That’s a difficult question to answer for any artist, I think. And, I dislike bullshit artist statements which are an epidemic these days, so words can feel pretty used up when talking about visual art. I do think that, like any art form, when people see these famous paintings, they half forget that they were not painted to cost 40 million dollars and be talked about at cocktail parties, but generally are sincere expressions of the self by people who were compelled to share.

You might see Hopper and feel he communicates a tangible sense of loneliness in the modern world. Maybe Munch has a more dire view, but you feel the isolation in his work. Someone like Klee has a great artistic playfulness and his work, to me communicates that and feels lively. Art is popular, at least partially, because the painter gives us something relatable and compelling.

I don’t think I’d be the only person to say that Rothko communicates a quality of infinite space. The pure color zen some would argue might belong to someone like Yves Klein, but Rothko makes a good case for color as a window into the spiritual. There’s a kind of religious infinity in his best paintings. They are deep but not distracting. This allows the viewer to look and concentrate in a kind of meditative state. Friends have told me all my life that they have sat with Rothkos for long periods of time.  I think it’s some version of this quality, however you want to describe it, that has made his work endure over the years. In the art that touches people they see themselves enough to bond to it.
