"Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" by Caspar David Friedrich

In the 19th century, wandering became a central motif in painting. Wandering is a symbolic exploration of new paths. Currents such as Sturm und Drang and Romanticism's enthusiasm for nature made wandering more and more popular. Today, wandering is a symbol of the slow movement, which advocates the slowing down of life's pace.

Starting point is Friedrich's "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog"

Starting from Caspar David Friedrich's masterpiece "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog", a loan from the Hamburger Kunsthalle, this exhibition brings together around 100 works since 1800 that depict walking. It becomes clear that this is a global fascination. The works includes paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Blechen, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Johan Christian Dahl, Gustave Courbet, Ferdinand Hodler, and Paul Gauguin.
