|Curator Led Tour of: The Enchanted World of German Romantic Prints||Dec 15, 2013||
Philadelphia Museum of Art
||Philadelphia, PA, USA|
11:30 AM Tour the exhibit with John W. Ittmann, The Kathy and Ted Fernberger Curator of Prints at the Philadelphia Museum Art
Prints created by Austrian, German, and Swiss artists included in this exhibition reflect the dramatic shifts in taste in the arts during a time of significant cultural and political transformation throughout the German-speaking regions of Central Europe during the Romantic period. The selection of 125 prints reflects a number of the artistic enthusiasms of the Romantic period, such as the emerging taste for wild, untamed landscapes; for intimate family scenes and friendship portraits; and for recently rediscovered ancient Nordic sagas and age-old fairytales. Offering a broad overview of a vital chapter in the history of European printmaking, The Enchanted World of German Romantic Prints will illuminate one of the richest areas of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s collections.
