Caspar David Friedrich, 1833, Easter Morning

A higher presence is indicated here in Easter Morning by the concentrated brightness of the dawn sky compared with the dullness of the landscape, which in turn creates a realistic impression of a cool, crisp morning. Symbols of life and death have always been prominent themes present in Friedrich’s work. This painting is no exception, as even the title directly addresses both of these ideas in the reference to Christ’s resurrection at Easter time.
