Caspar David Friedrich - Oil

Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (German: Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer
also known as Wanderer Above the Mist) is an oil painting composed in 1818 by Caspar David Friedrich. In the foreground, a young man stands upon a rocky precipice, his back to the viewer. He is wrapped in a dark green overcoat, and grips a walking stick in his right hand.[1] His hair caught in a wind, the wanderer gazes out on a garish landscape covered in a thick sea of fog. In the middle ground, several other ridges, perhaps not unlike the ones the wanderer himself stands upon, jut out from the mass. Through the wreaths of fog, forests of trees can be perceived atop these escarpments. In the far distance, faded mountains rise in the west, gently leveling off into lowland plains in the east. Beyond here, the pervading fog stretches out indefinitely, eventually commingling with the horizon and becoming indistinguishable from the cloud-filled sky. The painting is composed of various elements from the mountains of the Elbsandsteingebirge in Saxony and Bohemia. It currently resides in the Kunsthalle Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany.
