   schema:description "During the first half of the 19th century, the open window emerged as a consistent motif in German, Danish, French, and Russian painting and drawing. "Rooms with a View" is the first book to explore this intriguing theme in European art, with its Romantic intimations of unfulfilled longing and its associated qualities of poetry, luminosity, and interiority. Artists depicted this intangible mood with images of contemplative figures in hushed, sparsely furnished rooms; painters diligently at work in their studios; simple, serene displays of light entering a chamber; and windows as the focal point of views in their own right. "Rooms with a View" features forty oils and thirty works on paper by both well-known and largely undiscovered artists, including Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Gustav Carus, Georg Friedrich Kersting, Adolph Menzel, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Martinus Rorbye, Jean Alaux, Leon Cogniet, and Fyodor Petrovich Tolstoy."@en ;
