Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Caspar D. Friedrich was born on September 5, 1774 in a small town called Greifswald, Mecklenburg in Germany on the Baltic Sea.  When he was thirteen years old he fell through the surface of a frozen lake and nearly perished.  His brother saved his life but drowned in the effort.   In 1781 his mother died and a sister ten years later.  His dark deeply religious paintings may reflect these childhood tragedies.   

He attended the Copenhagen Acad (showing 500 of 2291 characters).
