Friedrich__View_of_Arkona_at_Moonrise
Caspar David Friendrich, View of Arkona at Moonrise


As I've said before, Friedrich is such a goth! One of the interesting things about him is that he apparently never, or at least rarely, gave his paintings titles, so all the titles you see for his works were given by other people and tend to be descriptive rather than allusive. I've seen this one also called "View of Arkona with Rising Moon and Nets," "Cape Arkona," and "Moonrise on an Empty Shore" (which is probably the most poetic of any of these).
