Vorlesung aus Goethe’s Werther (1870). Wilhelm Amberg (German, 1822-1899). Oil on canvas. Alte Nationalgalerie Berlin.

Five young girls are seated in a romantic spot outdoors to read from The Sorrows of Young Werther. One of them is crying, leaning on another girl’s shoulders. All are listening to the girl reading, with intense attentiveness, with handkerchiefs at hand to deal with the tears. All the young girls are moved by the reading of Werther.
