GERMANSONNENBLICK IM RIESENGEBIRGE (SUNBURST IN THE RIESENGEBIRGE)
oil on canvas
25.5 by 31.5cm., 10 by 12½in.
Graf Friedrich von Hahn, Schloss Basedow, Mecklenburg (probably acquired from the artist); thence by descent in the von Hahn family at least until 1949 (together with a second painting by the artist, Hochgebirgsgipfel mit treibenden Wolken (Mountain Peak with Drifting Clouds), now in the Kimbell Museum (fig. 1)) | Fritz Nathan, Zurich; thence by descent to the present owner

Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

The work German sonnenblick Im Riesengebirge (Sunburst In The Riesengebirge) by Caspar David Friedrich was worth GBP 2,170,000 (€ 2,417,572) to a buyer in December 2018. This price was achieved in the auction 19th Century European Paintings at Sothebys in London and exceeded the previously set upper estimate of GBP 700,000 many times over. Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by Caspar David Friedrich; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot German landschaft Mit Gebirgsee, Morgen (Landscape With Mountain Lake, Morning) sold at auction in December 2018 with the realized price of GBP 2,530,000 (€ 2,818,644).
