Monolith and Trees

Thomas Fearnley Norwegian

Not on view

The strikingly large scale of this rock relative to its setting betrays the influence of both Johan Christian Dahl, with whom Fearnley studied in Dresden in 1829–30, and Dahl’s neighbor, Caspar David Friedrich. The site has not been identified.
