The Beauty of Nature

This is a collection of two sculpture and eight painting by Johan Christian Dahl. Johan's collection of clouds, colors and how they all come together. The sculptures show how flowers can be beautiful any where and the eagle in flite.

A brief description about the artist: J.B. Carpeaux was one of the most renowned masters of both public and ornamental sculpture in niniteenth-Century France. Breaking the traditional approach to historical subjects and portraiture, he infused his sculpture with a previously unseen freedom and immediacy. When the original models were created Char[eaux used the most successful details of his own. The model fo th Flora was Anne Foucart, the daughter of the person who encouraged him to start his own reporduction. I chose this sculpture because of the beauty of the girl, because of the way the roses set on her head and on her dress.
A brief description about the artist: Ernst Friedrick August Rietschel was a German sculptor. He was elected a member of the academy of Dresden and became one of the chief sculptors of his country. Rietschel produced works imbued with much religious feeling and to some extent he occupied the same place as a sculptor that Overbeck did in painting. This sculpture shows a detail from "Die Musik" model for the southern tympanum. I chose this peice to be in my gallery because of the way the eagle glide throught the air with a lady playing music while setting on his back shows how beautiful nature can be.
This is a painting showing a view from the peak at Stalhein over the Naeroy Valley. Showing in the distance, creating a world in miniature. One of the artist purposes in this peice was racelism; the other was to capture the glory and magnificence of the mountain and associated with that of his country's culture. This peice speaks for itself, the rainbow between the mountains, the trees, grass and the small town in the middle. A great peice.
A brief description about the artist: During Johna Christian Dal journey to Italy in 1820, He carried out a series of cloud studies in Dresden. In this place he captured the threatening build-up of clouds above the castle tower. The dreams of the storm clouds serves as a Romantic symbol of the power of nature at the same time as being a perfectly neutral observation of meteorologial phenomena I chose this peice because of how the clouds formed with the blue sky peeping thru comes together over the town.
A brief description about the artist: Johan Christian Dahl is often described as the "father of Norwegon landscape painting" The painting has the grass, water, wind and clouds. The way the artist put it all together makes a beautiful peice.
A brief description about the artist: Johan Christian Dahl often know as J.C. Dahl was a Norwegian artist who is considered to be the first great romantic painter in Norway, The founder of the "golden age" of Norwegin painting and one of the greatest European artists of all time. The is another great peice, the artist really shows how nature can make a great view.
This is a brief description of the Artist: Dahl spent much of his life outside of Norway, his love for his county in clear in the motifs he chose for his paintings. I chose the painting because of the landscape. The way he caught, how nature can come together, a mountion on top of a mountion. A beautiful scenery.
I chose this peice because, I like the way the artist put everything in this painting. The trees, water going through the tree, the valley setting between the water and the mountains with a small town in the middle. The mountains in the clouds is beautiful.
This is another peace that shows us how much beautiful Norway has. And how much this artist can put so much love and beautiful in his work
Dominating the skyline; silvers and deep blue combine to give it a wonderful jewel-like effect. This painting is absolutely breathtaking
