More about this artwork
This key Nazarene work adopts the conceit of a friendship picture to portray symbolically the links between Italian and Early German art, personified as two young women in bridal attire. The concept is taken from a story and pictures on the subject by Overbeck's prematurely deceased painter friend Franz Pforr.
