Artist Caspar David Friedrich

So much art today is ugly, I needed a beauty fix.  This painting, by the 19th century German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich, makes me feel happy to be alive.  I'm not sure what the objective is of much of the stuff labelled "art" one sees daily on the web.  If it is to make you more depressed than you already are/were then it does accomplish that - but who wants to feel that way?

This image is from the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, an incredible art museum I wish I could get to more often.
