From Wikipedia :
“Caspar David Friedrich (5 September 1774 – 7 May 1840) was a 19th century German romantic painter, considered by many critics to be one of the finest exemplars of the movement.”
I’ve always had a natural attraction to Friedrich’s work: there is a lonely, spiritual stoicism at play in which the natural world becomes our cathedral.
