For someone new to the art of Casper David Friedrich, the first emotional response is that of awe. The color and compositions of Friedrich's work are humbling and humane at the same time. The artistic idealism found in his work is an organic out-growth of Friedrich's Protestant mystical piety at the zenith of German Romantic philosophical fervor.
Much metaphor, symbolism and perspective are at play within these works, that lead to an enobling of the human spirit. This is a perfect gift for anyone who is just beginning to increase their knowledge of 19th century European art.

I have been following the Khan Academy art history course and was intrigued by Caspar David Friedrich's works. I wanted to see more so I checked out amazon.com and found the Taschen Basic Art book. It cost less than $10! Amazing! And it's chock full of Friedrich's beautiful works and loads of text on his life and method. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn't have a lot of money to spend but wants to experience Caspar David Friedrich's world! It's a trip!

I have always loved the works of Friedrich. This book does them full justice with the addition of a well written text exploring the artist's life and themes.

Taschen full color reproductions of art and Norbert Wolf's text describing each painting are unexcelled.
Friedrich's works deserve wider audience.
Get the book - maybe with a favorite beverage on hand - a quiet moment -and just
let your mind dwell.

This Caspar book is of the old school in which we are not shocked by ugliness, nor baffled by confusing, meaningless shapes. This is straight art, beautifully executed and rich in compelling emotion.
