Giant Mountains (View of the Small Sturmhaube from Warmbrunn). 1810-s

In the work of the celebrated German painter, a friend of Goethe and Zhukovsky, the mountain landscape is associated with one of the main philosophical themes of German Romanticism, man's loneliness in the face of the incomprehensible and endless expanses of eternal nature, which arouse anxiety and melancholy in the artist's soul. The picture was painted under the impression of a journey to the northern Alps, Harz and Giant mountains made in July 1810.
