A figure. Standing in misty mountainous wilds or against turbulent seas. Always with his back to us.
This is the image most associated with Caspar David Friedrich.
The German romantic painter Friedrich imagined landscapes of powerful beauty and spirituality from within the limits of his studios. He developed an innovative approach to landscape painting: creating works imbued with mystery and emotion, highlighting nature’s power and dominance over man.
Sadly, Friedrich was misunderstood in his time. Today he is recognised as a true innovator. A painter of stillness and solitude. This talk looks at his poignant works of contemplative figures, twisted, gnarled forests and majestic, lonely landscapes.

Never Forgotten: The War in the Far East and in Modern Memory
Saturday – 2pm
Join historians from the four VJ75 partner organisations as they explore the road to Victory over Japan and discuss how it is remembered in myth and memory.
VE Day, on 8 May 1945, marked the end of the Second World War in Europe. But many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still engaged in bitter fighting in the Far East.
In this debate, historians from the National Army Museum, the National Museum of the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force Museum and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will explore the roles on land, sea and air throughout the Far East campaign, and examine how it continues to be commemorated. This panel will be hosted by journalist and author Shrabani Basu.
This event is part of our VJ75: Never Forgotten series.
