Ernst Ferdinand Oehme Dark Romanticism

Posted by darkartandcraft Admin on

Ernst Ferdinand Oehme

Ernst Ferdinand Oehme was a German Romantic painter trained at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. At the Dresden Academy Oehme worked under Danish painter Johan Christian Clausen Dahl whose friend Caspar David Friedrich greatly influenced the young Artist. His early works contained the sombre tones and 'Gothic' settings much like the accomplished Friedrich. His most famous oil painting 'Procession in the Mist' shows dark cloaked figures walking into the haze covered forest. Oehme's paintings are often beautifully subtle yet dark. In later years the Artist turned heavily toward landscape paintings focused on his native Germany.
