Zeitgeist: Art in the Germanic World, 1800–1900
West Pavilion, Plaza Level
Between 1800 and 1900 the Germanic world underwent profound intellectual, social, economic, and political changes. The Industrial Revolution, the formal unification of Germany into a nation state, and the invention of psychoanalysis shaped modern life and its representations in art. This exhibition—which includes the works of Caspar David Friedrich (1774–1840), Philipp Otto Runge (1777–1810), and Gustav Klimt (1862–1918)—brings together paintings, drawings, and prints from the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, and distinguished local private collections to examine this pivotal moment in Germanic history.
