Erforscht! News on Caspar David Friedrich's painting technique
| Neuer Pavillon im Schlosspark Charlottenburg
Expert guided tour with conservators
2024 is Caspar David Friedrich Year. To mark the occasion, the SPSG's Painting Conservation team examined several works by the famous Romantic artist and shared the results as part of an expert guided tour.
The paintings by Caspar David Friedrich on display in the New Pavilion take centre stage on this tour.
For example, the paintings in the SPSG's possession can be linked to works by the painter in other collections via the canvases used.
Underdrawings were discovered beneath the layers of colour, which clearly show how finely the famous Romantic painter balanced the pictorial elements.
Special drawing techniques and working methods, characteristic colour mixtures and an individual painting style demonstrate the artist's extraordinary skill.
The tour also includes a brief introduction to the New Pavilion, the retreat of King Frederick William III.
