Description
Despite the vast number of Americans who claim German ancestry, and the significant influence of German art on 19th-century American painting, there is no major collection of German works in the United States. This exhibition catalog from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presents works loaned from its counterpart in Leipzig, Houston's sister city, spanning such 19th-century movements as Romanticism, Symbolism, and the Nazarenes with color plates and detailed descriptions of 84 works by Caspar David Friedrich, Lovis Corinth, Adrian Ludwig Richter, Max Klinger, and other leading German artists.

"An introductory essay called 'Diversity Within Unity?' by Helmut Börsch-Supan explains the importance of regional centers such as Dusseldorf, Munich, Berlin, and Dresden and the critical roles of Rome and Paris as study destinations. Börsch-Supan joins with five other specialists to analyze the artworks and to discuss influences such as the Italian and German Renaissance on the Nazarenes, the Gothic period on the Romantics, and Dutch genre and landscape painting, Neoclassicism, Academic art, French Realism, Impressionism, and Symbolism on the evolving German styles. This [is a] fine introduction to the topic."—Library Journal
