Seven Views in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden: Monday: Rosenecker Garden Salzburg

Seven Views in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden: Monday: Rosenecker Garden Salzburg


Ferdinand Olivier

(German, 1785-1841)


Dudley P. Allen Fund 1990.11



Various threads of German Romantic art---spiritualized landscape, medievalism, and religious imagery---were woven together in the work of Olivier, a Nazarene. Olivier based Seven Views in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden on sketches made during two trips to the Tyrolean Alps. In the series, Olivier used the days of the week to represent cycles of growth and decay, the stages of human life, and the Passion of Christ. Monday resonates with religious meaning; three figures allude to the Holy Family working in domestic harmony in the landscape.
