Eduard Magnus: Return of the Palikaren

Return of the Palikaren: Eduard Magnus

German painter Eduard Magnus created Return of the Palikaren while in Italy in 1836. Here he shows in gesture, expression, and even coloring the high sentimentality of the late Romantic phase.

This picture depicts a man in mythological Greek dress, perhaps a soldier, who is reunited with his family after a long engagement.

Eduard Magnus’s Return of the Palikaren is in the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Germany.
