She still refused to look at him, but she could feel the heated flush of anger again in her cheeks. “Cooperate with the guards.

This is just a quick post about something that’s been on my mind for a while. It’s sad that there are so many preconceived ideas about YA novels, ideas that show those who speak about them, very often haven’t read any. I’m writing for adults, children and Young Adults and in one of my writer’s […]

Caspar David Friedrich is one of my favourite painters too.
I never saw this comment of yours… It does strike me that you do not like romanticism in literature but you do in art. Interesting.
I still like Caspar David Friedrich. I saw a nice Modigliani retrospective in rome three years ago and bought his biography but… Always the same story. Not enough time.
Let’s say I’m a suffer-in-silence type.
Os, ahs and whining and spilling of guts bore me. That’s why I have difficulties with romanticism in literature.
I think I also tend to rather suffer in silence still I enjoy a lot of Romantic writing. What about ghost stories? I think there is such a ghostly feel in Caspar David Friedrich’s paintings. I love Gothic things. Susan Hill’s ghost stories could be illustrated by one of his paintings. Very old-fashioned and well written. Like M.R. James.
I just noticed this post listed on your sidebar under Top Posts and had to click over. I discovered him recently through the Josipovici book that was The Wolves’ May reading selection. I definitely need to track down more of his paintings. I like the one you shared here – so evocative.
I did a museums tour a few years back, chasing his paintings. I saw many of them in real. He is an astonishing painter. I really like him.
