Caspar David Friedrich - Riesengebirgslandschaft mit aufsteigendem Nebel (um 1819-20)

There were certainly great artists among the Romantic painters of Europe, men such as Turner's contemporary, the German painter Caspar David Friedrich (1774 - 1840), whose landscape pictures reflect the mood of the Romantic lyrical poetry of his time which is more familiar to us through Schubert's songs. His painting of a bleak scenery may even remind us of the spirit of Chinese lanscape paintings which also comes so close to the idea of poetry.
