By the middle of the 1820s, Friedrich’s painting gradually began to go out of fashion. And although he remained a professor at the Dresden Academy of Arts, he was gradually forgotten. Friedrich did not want to write what the public wanted to see, saying that it would mean “to go against nature” for him.
And he did not change himself. “Arable land near Dresden” is one of his best landscapes. The plowed land, several apple trees that have not yet blossomed, the gentle color of the sky – all this creates a sense of expectation of something wonderful. And does not the hanging silhouette of Dresden seem to be eternal, against the background of golden clouds?
