Philipp Otto Runge

Runge, Philipp Otto (fēˈlĭp ôtˈō rŏngˈə) [key], 1777–1810, German painter. Immersed in the mysticism of the romantic movement in Germany, Runge became a central figure of romantic painting. He was influenced by C. D. Friedrich and by Goethe to express universal harmonies in his art. His Rest on the Flight into Egypt (c.1805) is in the Kunsthalle in Hamburg.
