One of my favorite romantic painters is Casper David Friedrich. His art somehow synthesises the dark, brooding, quiet, and religious in ways I have a hard time explaining.
I have been doing steampunk photo-manipulations of my two favorite pieces. A while back I did this rework of 'Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer' pictured below. Just some atmospheric changes and the addition of Abney Park's Ophelia. (
Hope this is OK, attempting to get permission now.) Permisison obtained, Capt. Robert... You Rock! (No pun intended)
