Sweden discovers Caspar David Friedrich

Caspar David Friedrich, the leading painter of the German Romantic era, is nowadays regarded as one of the greatest figures in the history of art. Nevertheless, he remains relatively unknown in Sweden outside art history circles. This October, Nationalmuseum sets out to change this by presenting Scandinavia’s first monographic exhibition of works by Friedrich. In all, over 90 artworks will be on show, including some 40 paintings, until January 10, 2010.
