Romantic   •   Andreas Achenbach @ Wikipedia

Andreas Achenbach can be considered as a picturesque child prodigy of the 19th century, who studied painting at the age of twelve at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, among others with Wilhelm von Schadow . He promoted his talent at an early age by traveling extensively to Holland, the Scandinavian countries, Italy and France. The more than a thousand paintings that he painted in the course of his life are mainly attributed to landscape painting. His favorite subjects were large-format seascapes. In the picture "A sea storm on the Norwegian coast" from the year 1837, forces of nature roar with angry force. Meter-high waves break in the storm on karstic rocks in the foreground of the picture and threaten to tear a ship into the abyss. In strong blue coloring Achenbach has painted this large-format seascape.

The viewer, who stands in astonishment at the Städelmuseum in Frankfurt, finds himself almost exposed to the dangers of the wild, menacing waves that strike against the rocks with all their might. He may be worried that the ship, whose bow will soon jut vertically out of the water, will withstand this violence, or whether the sinking is inevitable.

With his sharp eye for details and the faithful reproduction of impressive landscapes, Andreas Achenbach is considered the founder of German realism. Highly respected by the greats in politics and society for his work, the painter was buried according to princely standards in Dusseldorf. © Meisterdrucke
