Caspar David Friedrich, 1774-1840, was an icon of the German Romantic movement in 19th-century, as the most important German artist of his generation, for his mid-period allegorical
landscapes. The early 20th century brought a renewed appreciation of Caspar David Friedrich paintings, beginning in 1906 with an exhibition of thirty-two of his paintings in Berlin. By the 1920s his artworks had been discovered by the Expressionists, and in the 1930s and early 1940s Surrealists
and Existentialists frequently drew ideas from Caspar David Friedrich oil painting. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
