German Romanticism

Why waste £10 to £15 visiting one of those autumn biggies in London galleries and museums when you can view a top-notch exhibition for free? Yesterday The British Museum opened Landscape, heroes and folktales: German Romantic prints and drawings in Room 90. It displays over 100 18th–19th-century prints and drawings inspired by German Romanticism, a movement that was influential across the whole of Europe. The example shown is a detail from Carl Wilhelm Kolbe's etching I too was in Arcadia (1801). Looks good. This free exhibition runs until 1 April 2012 (title link).
