Caspar David Friedrich was one of the most important representatives of early romanticism. Time was marked by war and motives, which at first sight are marked by reverie and sensitivity, show at second glance loneliness, death and great melancholy. The monk by the sea is in a contourless landscape. The transitions between sand, sea and sky are flowing. Thus Friedrich broke with the usual manner of representation in landscape painting. The viewer is not, as in other paintings by the artist, led into perspective in the landscape. The monk, perhaps from the Capuchin Order, can be seen in the painter's preferred back view. In his own interpretation, the artist speaks of the longing for death and the ignorance of an existence, after the last step has been taken. At the time of completion of the painting Friedrich was under the impression of the loss of two people close to him. © Meisterdrucke
