Sixteen extraordinary etchings from a really wild imagination, published in two editions during his lifetime. A founding inspiration to Gothic-Romantic and Surrealist art.
He made about 2,000 prints, overwhelmingly views of Roman ruins. They remain a reference for artists, archaeologists and antiquaries.
Wonderful ‘Gothic’ Romantic paintings of remoteness, religion, and rugged landscape from Germany in the 19th century. A very influential painter indeed.
Co-founder of the highly influential Düsseldorf School, he was influenced by Caspar David Friedrich, and Gothic Romantic fiction.
