Exhibition "Baroque Meets Romanticism

W skrócie

In the orangery of the Baroque Garden Großsedlitz in summer 2024, to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the birth of the famous Romantic painter, Caspar David Friedrich. The exhibition "Baroque meets Romanticism" with works by the artists Anne Kern and Gabi Keil can be seen. Both deal with landscape in different ways. What they have in common is their love of oil painting (on canvas and paper) and the calm, even brushstroke. The motifs vary from rock and quarry landscapes (Kern) to water surfaces and cityscapes (Keil).

The subject matter of both painters is very unagitated. The motifs rest within themselves and radiate an inner contemplation and deep stillness. They invite the viewer to linger and dream - to pause and take a deep breath. Most of the pictures seem to have fallen out of time and are right in the middle of it. After all, the longing for stillness and connection with nature, for infinity, which Caspar David Friedrich also sought, is as old as mankind. The artists' pictures mostly do without people and only make "references" to civilisation. The "simplicity" of the pictures refers to the return of people to their roots and their essence. This expression can also be found in the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich and can be marvelled at in magnificent compositions.
