Few pictures unite the maxim of romanticism, the longing for the distance, the progressive nationalism and the closeness to nature, as skilfully as "Two Men in Contemplation of the Moon" by Caspar David Friedrich. Mountain slope and tree form a window into a promising distance, from which the light of the moon shines against the two men in the picture as well as the viewer. Although the motif seems realistic, nothing is left to chance and probably everything is constructed by Friedrich. The most important indication for this is the night sky, which is not observable in Europe. The two men wear old German costumes, which is often interpreted as a commentary on the Carlsbad resolutions, although Frederick himself commented this with ironic ridicule: "They make demagogic machinations." © Meisterdrucke
