0077 Handwerklicher Hintergrund und Perspektiven akademischer Studien
Zum Frühwerk Joseph Führichs in Böhmen
The study of the early works by Joseph Führich helps to elucidate his role in the formation of the national schools of painting as understood by the early 19th century. It also reveals the links between the academic schooling and paintings of the artist (regarded as one of the leading representatives of Romanticism in the early 1820s in Prague) and his commissioned works of the period intended for more traditional clients and public – altar paintings for Northern Bohemian churches. An analysis of his most important paintings from around the mid-1820s indicates, that he managed to integrate various elements into highly specific personal style: craftsmanship acquired in his father's workshop, elements inspired by old art, academic schooling, and inspiration provided by contemporary Romantic art and iconography.
