Courtauld Gallery exhibits Romantic landscapes

Date Posted: 04/11/2013

A collaborative exhibition between The Courtauld Gallery in London and The Morgan Library and Museum in New York, A Dialogue with Nature: Romantic Landscapes from Britain and Germany will run at the London venue from 30th January to 27th April.

A Dialogue with Nature will explore aspects of Romantic landscape drawing in Britain and Germany from its origins in the 1760s to its final flowering in the 1840s.

Bringing together 26 major drawings, watercolours and oil sketches from both collections by artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Samuel Palmer, Caspar David Friedrich and Karl Friedrich Lessing, it draws upon the complementary strengths of both collections.

The exhibition offers students the opportunity to consider points of commonality as well as divergence between two distinctive schools of art.

The Courtauld Gallery runs a wide variety of workshops, tours and self-guided support for school groups. A school visit to the gallery must be booked in advance.
