From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings From Dresden

The Getty presents From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings from Dresden at the Getty Center from October 5, 2006-April 29, 2007 This exhibition takes a look at the range of German painting in the time period between two of the best-known German artists associated with Dresden Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) and Gerhard Richter (b. 1932). For this exhibition, two galleries in the Museum's West Pavilion will be dedicated exclusively to the works of these two artists one devoted to a series of works by Friedrich, the key voice of German Romanticism, from the Galerie Neue Meister in Dresden; the second showcasing new work by Gerhard Richter, the most significant German artist working today. Additionally, paintings by other German artists from the Galerie Neue Meister, one of the foremost collections of German art from the 19th century to the present, will be interspersed throughout the Getty Museums permanent galleries, displayed alongside objects from the Gettys own collection to allow for comparisons of subject matter, technique and style.
