Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) was one of the most important artists in German Romanticism and many of his paintings have long had a permanent place in our collective memory. This book undertakes a detailed re-evaluation of the work of Caspar David Friedrich. In an examination of both paintings and drawings a fresh analytical light is cast on Friedrich's development as an artist. At the same time the book illuminates the historical context with reference to Friedrich's own correspondence and comments by his contemporaries. Richly illustrated with over 200 reproductions, this study crucially revises our picture of this multi-faceted pre-Modernist German painter.
