The artist

Born in Frankfurt in 1955, Bernhard Hartmann began his artistic career at the age of 18 as a press photographer for a German newspaper. Self-taught, he studied art and became a landscape photographer after discovering this medium with the aid of his parents? Polaroid. He creates dramatic and cinemascopic images that are often compared to the Romantic paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, but also to the dramatic natural scenes by English painter William Turner. He prefers to photograph places where the arts are practised and expressed and thus presents series on operas, theatres, or European manors. A lawyer in Munich, Bernard Hartmann now lives near Lake Starnberg in the Bavarian Alps. His works belong to numerous private collections and have been shown in the United States, Spain, Italy, and Germany. He was elected ?Photographer of the Year? by a Swiss magazine and won the ?American Black-and-White Photo Awards? as well as the ?Panoramic Epson Award?.  ... See more See less

All artworks

I love what is beautiful. The serenity of a beautiful garden and the grave of an architectural monument must provoke the same emotion for the viewer. They must be enchanted through their emotions.

BERNHARD HARTMANN

About the artwork

It was north of the Italian Alps, in opera?s native land, that these classical and grandiose theatres, so dear to Bernhard Hartmann, started to be built in the 18th century. Situated in the heart of the ancient historic centre, La Scala of Milan, an Italian opera house of international renown. The great works of Verdi, Rossini and Wagner were presented there, and Renata Tebaldi and Maria Callas feature amongst their most famous opera singers. The artist is particularly interested in representing the size and magnificence of the theatre when devoid of all human presence.Though the architectural distribution of traditional theatres is often quite similar, Bernhard Hartmann nevertheless underlines the specificity of each of their grand and specific decors. Each bears witness to its own history and especially to the decorative style, quite often representative of a specific artistic period. La Scala in Milan, which dates back to 1778, represents a neoclassical style, greatly influenced by antiquity, which emerged at the end of the 18th century.
