OIL PAINTING: Moonrise by the Sea, 1822
Evening here in Moonrise by the Sea replies to morning. The annual round subjugates humankind to its law. Distances can no longer be gauged in rational terms, so that water, ships, moon and sky open up a dream world extending between yearning and melancholy, between near and far, between this world and the universe. In Moonrise by the Sea by Friedrich looking becomes meditative contemplation.
