Carl Blechen, 1797-1840, born in Cottbus, showed up in Berlin at 16 years old, where he, in line with his dad, finished his business studies and afterward labored for quite a long while in banking. His inventive ability turned out to be progressively evident, starting his examinations in 1822 at the Art Academy in Berlin. In Berlin, Karl Friedrich Schinkel perceived Blechen’s excellent ability as a painter and acquired a situation as a stage painter to the imperial theater. During 1829/1830, Blechen went all through Italy. With the impressions he assembled from the towns and different scenes, he started painting in a style recognized by its casual, streaming painterly execution. The liberal brushstroke that Blechen utilized was considered a mixture of individual pictorial components: scene, design, and staffage converge into an advantageous entirety. Attributable to reformist episodes of despair, Blechen was soon incapable of working and was put in a mental medical clinic, where he passed on in mental insanity. His peers excitedly got his work but at the same time were, inferable from its dismissal for traditional scene painting goals, cause for discussion.
