More about this artwork
Romantic authors and artists seized on the times of day as a way of conveying symbolic messages. The passage of the day from morning to night could be made to represent the development over time of nature and human life. These four circular images, or tondi, reproduce separately the motifs that Schwind had depicted on the frame of his painting Symphony (Neue Pinakothek, Munich).
