Romantic Landscapes From Britain and Germany
Carl Philipp Fohr (1795-1818), 'The Ruins of Hohenbaden', 1814-15, The Morgan Library and Museum
We would all love to go gallivanting across the countryside or travel Europe in search of beautiful scenic views, but for those days when responsibilities get in the way of pleasurable holidays, you can still take a few hours down time at the Courtauld Gallery, where you can find a good substitute for the real thing.
Between the 30th January - 27th April, the gallery will be in A Dialogue With Nature. The exhibition features Romantic landscape of Britain and Germany, focussing on the period between the 1760s to the 1840s.
Featuring twenty-six major drawings, watercolours, and oil sketches, artists include J.M.W. Turner, Samuel Palmer, Carl Philipp Fohr, and Caspar David Friedrich.
Admission to the gallery is £6 for adults, £5 concessions, and free for under eighteens. There will be a series of related events taking place during the course of the exhibition, including a curator's talk on the 5th February and scheduled visits to the Prints and Drawings Room, where you will get to see hidden gems from the collection. There will also be a late night opening on the 6th March if you can't make it during the day.
