Contemplating the old crescent moon at dawn - two pictures by Caspar David Friedrich


I really love some of the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840).

He often did near identical pieces - as above.

But what a difference in mood it makes having a man and woman contemplating the moon, as contrasted with two men - plus a slight difference in light and shadow!
