Baade was a Norwegian romanticist, particularly known for portraits and landscape paintings. He specialized in moonlight paintings with naval motifs from the Norwegian coast. Sometimes he hung his paintings upside down so that the moon would seem like an open eye which stared at the viewer. Baade spent most of his life in München where King Ludwig I of Bayern was one of his patrons. The king was so fond of his paintings that he approved a bust to be made of Baade which was placed in an art museum in Münich.
