Excellent reproductions of many Caspar David Friedrich works

If you are into Caspar David Friedrich then you know how hard it is to find reproductions of his paintings in art books. This book is an excellent chance to buy (or even see at all) reproductions of some of his less famous paintings. The reproductions are very nice quality, and many of them also reproduce enlargements of sections of the painting. There is a short description for each that ties it in with Friedrich's life and what he was doing at the time. Also lots of biographical info on the artist (but the writing is kind of dry and not so easy to read). If you are looking for a book on the artist then this is an excellent option. List of some nice color reproductions: On the Sailboat (1818) Sisters on the Harbor view Terrace (1820) Moonrise by the Sea (1821) Morning in the Mountains (1822) The Nets (1830) Swans in the Reeds by Dawns early Light (1832) Evening Landscape with 2 Men (1830) The Dreamer (1835) Those are some of the full page color prints. There are many many more slightly smaller prints, including a section exploring the owl motif in his art, a section on paintings of ruins, views of his studios and out the studio windows (my fav. part) and many landscapes summer and winter. I highly recommend this book to libraries and fans of the artist. The volume of reproductions is good and the reproductions are very high quality.
