Wanderer above the Sea of Fog

The breathtaking 94,8 × 74,8 cm oil on canvas called Wanderer above the Sea of Fog was made by Caspar David Friedrich. The work was painted around 1818 and is part of the Hamburger Kunsthalle's collection, which also houses many other incredible works by David Friedrich. Wanderer above the Sea of Fog is David Friedrich's most famous masterpiece and became highly associated with Romanticism. The image of a lonely man facing a vast yet enigmatic space is the perfect analogy for the subjectivity and the defense of the genius by the intellectual movement. The artwork is an outstanding painting that captivates every viewer.

Wanderer above the Sea of Fog was executed on a vertical canvas and shows a man wearing a green suit who is centralized in the composition. The man has his back to the audience, and his hair is waving to the left, moved by the wind. A long walking cane is resting on his waist, and one of his knees is flexed.

The man is on the top of a perfectly painted dark brown rock formation, and this same mountainous land is seen far away from him, amid a sea of fog. The line of the horizon is blurry and covered by the mist that extends through the whole image. Close to the man's shoulders levels, two distant blue mountains extend until the canvas's limits and create a line that directs the gaze toward the man. The moving mist close to his figure also emphasizes the man, giving a whole posed yet fluid sensation while looking continuously at the picture.

In the most distant visible locations of the picture, there are some high curvilinear mountains. One of the contours of these mountains matches perfectly with the man's line of view. The wanderer's place also has a triangle shape, a standard geometry format used in classical composition. Since the man and the mountain he is in are in the foreground, the distance to the horizon is greatly emphasized. Caspar David Friedrich painted this landscape with impressive fidelity and yet created a mysterious image that expresses the passionate aspirations of its creator. The image also alludes to the relationship between man and nature and its ability to provoke the feeling of the sublime.

Finest quality stretching, gallery wrap or framing

Purchasing without a frame
(unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

Purchasing a Stretching Service

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

Door to door fully insured courier delivery

All orders ship with UPS, FedEx or DHL and will arrive directly to your home or office. A tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as the order leaves our studio so you can track it online. All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
