Posted September 11th, 2013

Caspar David Friedrich is well done specially thanks his allegorical landscapes, which typically feature contemplative, silhouetted against night skies. Less known are his landscapes paintings without figures, removing in a way the sublime effect and converting the landscapes into something nearest.
