Custom print in terms of other Standard Print sizes or languages are available from website Volume 20 By the SeaCaspar David Friedrich Caspar David Friedrich (5 September 1774 – 7 May 1840) was a 19th-century German Romantic landscape painter. Considered the most important German artist of his generation. Caspar was taught early in his artist education to sketch outdoor and became known for his representations of allegorical landscapes and the small space occupied by silhouetted humans in these scenes. Modern psychiatry would have a field day completing analysis of individual works as driven by his temperament and early tragic events. Personally I find his work, in most cases awe-inspiring and tend to overlook the obvious links of color and subjects to his past Caspar David Friedrich died after painting a long legacy of works. Tragedies in Caspar’s life left indelible marks on the subject of his sketches and paintings. Friedrich had lost a mother early in his life as well as a sister who had in essence, replaced a mother was also called early in her life. A brother drowned in an ice floe, reported by some, while attempting to save Caspar. Related Vol 21 Landscapes -Caspar Friedrich
