Romantic   •   Caspar David Friedrich @ Wikipedia

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) appears today's viewers as the German painter of Romanticism par excellence. His work is full of allusions and symbols of death and transience, but also of political connections. Ultimately, however, Frederick's images remain open to interpretation and still exert an enormous impact on the inexperienced viewer.

Such as the sublime representation of an ice landscape with sunken ship, created in 1823/24. The picture became known under the title 'Failed Hope', which mutated into a symbol of failed democratic aspirations, or else as an allegory of failed human hope in general. But the picture, like the complete works of Friedrich, refuses all clear interpretations.

Heinrich von Kleist comes much closer to the enormous effect of the work, when he noted in the face of the painting 'The Monk by the Sea', he was, "if you look at it as if the eyelids were cut off". © Meisterdrucke
