De Romantiek in het Noorden – van Friedrich tot Turner

The Groninger Museum presented in 2017 the exhibition Romanticism in the North: From Friedrich to Turner, the first international survey exhibition of northern European Romantic landscape painting. Dramatic scenes of raging seas, imposing mountains and erupting volcanoes alternate with quiet moonlit nights and peaceful fields where lonely figures pause to rest. You could discover more than 95 magnificent works from the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia and Great Britain.
