Caspar Friedrich is considered the most important German artist of his generation, best known for allegorical landscapes which typically feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees or Gothic ruins. His primary interest as an artist was the contemplation of nature and often set a human presence in diminished perspective amid expansive landscapes.
