The Dusseldorf School of Painting and Its International Influence, 1819-1918
One of the most important European art institutions of the 19th century is explored in this guide to the Dusseldorf School of Painting. The catalog offers a representative overview of the school within its international context from romanticism to impressionism, presenting 25 authoritative essays that draw from the most current research.
