Carl Blechen's overwhelming success as a painter had not necessarily been born to him: his parents had absolutely nothing to do with art or painting. His father was a tax official and the family lived in modest circumstances. Carl Blechen was born in Berlin in 1798. During his time at grammar school he had lessons with the well-known painter Ch. G. Lemmrich, who recognized his potential. Unfortunately, Blechen's parents did not have the means to let their son study, so he began an apprenticeship as a banker and also worked in this profession. At the same time, however, he always devoted himself to painting. Finally, at the age of 24, he began studying at the Berlin Academy of Arts. After completing his studies, he got a permanent job as a decorative painter at the Königsstädtisches Theater in Berlin, which he lost due to personal quarrels. He became independent as a freelance artist and travelled the Baltic Sea coast and especially Italy. He brought home over 500 sketches, after which he created his paintings.

He attracted attention and at the age of 33 he was appointed professor for landscape painting at the Berlin Academy. He continued to travel, paint and teach, but his fragile health became increasingly apparent. He had severe psychological problems and suffered from recurring depressions. Finally he was granted leave from the academy. His last journey led him to Dresden, from where he made his last drawing, and his health did not recover. He died on July 23rd 1840 in mental derangement.
Br/> Our idea of romanticism in painting is influenced by Caspar David Friedrich and includes wild romantic landscapes, dramatic moods, gnarled trees and weathered castles. All these ingredients can also be found in Carl Blechen's work, but unlike the early Romantics, he did not create fairytale or heroic settings. His landscapes depict reality, are more drastic and at the same time more sober. In his light and color effects he achieves moods that are already reminiscent of the Impressionists. This way of representing nature was quite controversial at the time, but his work was groundbreaking. © Meisterdrucke
