The two romantic painters Caspar David Friedrich and Joseph Mallord William Turner had little in common apart from both being painters in the same era. While Caspar David Friedrich had a rather dark and melancholic view of life, Joseph Mallord William Turner had a full-blooded engagement with the world around him. Their differences are what drives this novel forward. Even though there was such a big contrast between the two men, they were connected by the uniqueness of their art. Friedrich’s works became part of an existential awareness of life. And Turner, on the other hand, with his powerful use of light and colour paved the way for a new impressionistic art form.
The engaging novel “TO LIVE IN ALL ETERNITY” by Christoph Werner lets readers experience an encounter of intimate distance between the two painters and opens the world of their images, their motives and their times. It is a must-read for everyone who enjoys the art of romanticism and would like to gain a deeper and better understanding of two of the men who were responsible for some of the masterpieces we still admire in the 21st century.
