A Dialogue with Nature: Romantic Landscapes from Britain and GermanyBritish and German Romantic landscape drawing is explored in the Courtauld exhibition through major drawings, watercolours and oil sketches by artists including JMW Turner, Samuel Palmer, Caspar David Friedrich and Karl Friedrich Lessing. By displaying these German and British artworks alongside each other for the first time, the former having been lent by the Morgan Library in New York, they can be seen to exemplify Caspar David Friedrich's understanding of the Romantic artist being in 'dialogue with nature'. Friedrich saw the importance of the imagination and close observation of the natural world as being the central elements of the Romantic concept of landscape. "The artist should not only paint what he sees before him, but also what he sees in himself," he said.
