THE YEAR 2024 is a year of ROMANTICISM.

Caspar David Friedrich’s 250th birthday is commemorated by several large exhibitions of the most famous German painter whose art was dismissed as kitsch for decades. This year his art will be celebrated comprehensively and appropriately. An exhibition overview:

Caspar David Friedrich, Das Riesengebirge, 1830, oil on canvas.
