Project Brief Description:

Caspar David Friedrich (September 5, 1774 - May 7, 1840) was a landscape painter of the nineteenth-century German Romantic movement, of which he is now considered the most important painter. A painter and draughtsman, Friedrich is best known for his later allegorical landscapes, which feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees and Gothic ruins. His primary interest as an artist was the contemplation of nature, and his often symbolic and anti-classical work seeks to convey the spiritual experiences of life.
A dark palette, dense atmospheres, deep dusks, lonely figures, wild nature, architectural ruins... all of these are his techniques to mastering the evoking of the most intangible of the emotions, such as eternity, supremacy, infinity, melancholy, and finally, materializing a notion as elusive as the course of time.
