"My own creed as a playwright is fairly close to that expressed by the painter in Shaw’s play The Doctor’s Dilemma, 'I believe in Michelangelo, Velásquez and Rembrandt; in the might of design, the mystery of color, the redemption of all things by beauty everlasting and the message of art that has made these hands blessed. Amen.'" -- Tennessee Williams

I don't need much of an excuse to celebrate Casper David Friedrich, so thanks for the chance *Sarah*.

Morning in the Riesengebirge
1810/11; Oil on canvas, 108 x 170 cm.
Schloss Charlottenburg, Berlin.

from this site:

Difficult to believe that this painting is from 1810.

I have never seen his work. It's haunting and beautiful, and more so in consideration of when it was done.

I was just looking at this website and found this painting as well - doesn;t it seem like it could be the backdrop for Giselle?
