In Focus: Caspar David Friedrich’s Wanderer in a Sea of Fog

  • Monday 1 June 2020
  • Lecturer: Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff

In this hour-long lecture Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff will take the time to add some background, context and historical perspective to one of art history’s greatest masterpieces, the poster boy for Romanticism and a painting few actually get to visit in person. This small German gem offers introspection and quiet meditation at a time we all need it!
