Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog by Caspar David Friedrich (1818)
This oil painting is the work of German Romantic, Caspar David Friedrich, known for his captivating landscapes and mystical silhouettes of figures. The painting is showcased at the Kunsthalle Hamburg in Germany.
The young man in the painting stands on a rocky bluff. While we cannot see his face, his posture reveals a contemplative tone.
Clearly, the recreation transforms our contemplative gentleman into Waldo from the book series Where’s Waldo, as he takes a stroll on soaking dishes.
