One Last Friedrich Painting
This is one of my favorites, The Evening Star from about 1835 showing Friedrich's wife and children on a small hill above Dresden. We can see the dome of the old Frauenkirche peeking just above the crest of the hill. The joy of his young son at seeing the star fills this whole painting.
