‘Two Men Contemplating the Moon’ - Caspar David Friedrich, 1825–30

Friedrich’s Romantic paean to the fascination of the moon for poets, philosophers and musicians the world over.  And being a thorough-going Romanticist himself, Friedrich offers us his figures from behind, so we can join in their communion with Nature, “which the Romantics saw as a manifestation of the Sublime.”
