A gothic ruin by the German painter Caspar David Friedrich.
A veteran is visiting the tomb of a long dead hero. Maybe it’s worth to mention that the tomb of this hero (Ulrich von Hutten) is in a well-preserved chapel. The ruin is a pure invention of Friedrich to emphasize decay and failure, like the decapitated statue of Faith in the niche, the tomb and the evening light.
