Vakliteratuur die leest als een roman. Aanrader.


Nothing much of depth here. There was far too much obvious formal analysis, and far too few new insights (at least to me, reading the book 35 years after it was published).


A good overview linking romantic themes from Friedrich to Rothko. A surprisingly quick read -- definitely an overview and not a deep/in-depth probing of these works or the content of romantic painting. Enjoyable.
