This sumptuous volume is a treat from start to finish (though best read in short bursts, due to its size and weight!). Sure, the text is a bit solemn and plodding at times, but it's also very well researched, insightful, and at times revelatory about the influences on Friedrich, who turns out to have been a surprisingly late developer. The illustrations are simply magnificent, to the point where some of the enlarged full-page and double-page spreads almost improve on the experience of seeing the originals (which are mostly small, and behind glass, and sometimes poorly lit, or in crowded galleries). I've rarely come across an art book which so completely transforms my view of a favourite artist, or which has been designed with such care and artistry. Worth every penny, especially at Amazon's discounted rate.

Superb overview of a great artist.
Very good service from the provider who exchanged one we had erroneously bought as it was in German.
All finances went through the system seamlessly.
Fantastic quality prints and production. A very good buy and great present.

I gave this to my husband for his birthday. It is a beautiful book full of thbis pretty unknown German artist. My husband is German so the fact it was in German wasn't a problem but I had actually expected it to be in English.

Great book, with beautiful layout and quality of illustrations and reproductions of the paintings. Excellent reduction of over £30 from the price in the Tate bookshop.

I love Mahler and to me Caspar David's pictures could be a Visual metaphor or backdrop to his great Choral Symphonies
