A Dialogue with Nature: Romantic Landscapes from Britain and Germany

40 color illustrations
8.25 x 8.25 inches
Exploring aspects of Romantic landscape drawing in Britain and Germany from its origins in the 1760s to its final flowering in the 1840s, this catalogue considers 26 major drawings from London's Courtauld Gallery and the Morgan, by artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Samuel Palmer, Caspar David Friedrich, and Karl Friedrich Lessing. It draws upon the complementary strengths of both collections: the Morgan's exceptional group of German drawings and the Courtauld's wide-ranging holdings of British works. A Dialogue with Nature offers the opportunity to consider points of commonality as well as the divergence between two definitive schools.
