About the Work

The romantic motif of the castle Fragenstein with country people in old German costumes goes back to a journey Fohr made as a young student on the trail of Albrecht Dürer from Munich via the Alps to Venice. The composition, probably composed later in Italy under the influence of Joseph Anton Koch, is built around the diagonal of the imposing mountains. Fohr sketches the outlines and details with a light, but sure hand. Above this, he sets the finely graduated, albeit rather two-dimensional, delicate, blue-green tones of the watercolour; they are not least responsible for the special charm of this drawing. When Fohr drowned in the Tiber at the age of 23 while bathing, he left only a few paintings, but over 900 works on paper. They show his great talent as a landscape painter and portraitist, making him an outstanding master of Romanticism.
