Summary "Berlin was one of the last European capitals to become a great city, transforming itself from a barracks town to a centre of art, industry and empire in a century of extraordinarily rapid development. The Nationalgalerie in Berlin, opened in 1876, uniquely mirrors developments in nineteenth-century art both there and elsewhere in Germany. Its representative holdings include a number of key works. This book, with essays that provide continuity and context, and with detailed entries on individual paintings, offers a rare introduction in English to German art of the nineteenth century. it accompanies a major loan exhibition organised by the National Gallery, London and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC."--Jacket.
