Caspar David Friedrich

Romanticism: nature, intuition, refusal of the materialism of modern life, imagination, no-rules, genius, the individual bringing something new to mankind. CDF really lived a life of a romantic artist. He died in obscurity, and his work has known ups and downs since then. Since the 1970´s, it is an ** phase. He painted mainly landscapes. Man is a detail, most of his work. He suffered bouts of depression, during which his works were populated by cemeteries and vultures. Enjoy.

Samuel Beckett got here his inspiration for writing "Waiting for Godot".
