The Wanderer above a sea of fog[edit]

The Wanderer Above a Sea of Fog by Friedrich (1818)

As per my previous accepted nomination for Dante and Virgil in Hell, this is a beautiful painting, lovingly photographed. This came from Commons where it will be featured shortly. It can be seen at Caspar David Friedrich.

  • Oppose. A photo of a painting - hardly unique on the Internet (refer to FP Criterion 3). Try a Google search on it to see what I mean. Colour reproduction is also questionable compared to other versions. --jjron 08:59, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. As per jjron. I did a google image search and noticed that there is a great deal of variation when it comes to representation of the colours, but this one seems too orange compared to other photographs of the same painting. --Pharaoh Hound (talk) 13:42, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Per jjron, also I don't find the painting all that special either. -Ravedave 03:44, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
  • comment I understand what you guys mean about it not being particularly interesting, nevertheless it is one of the most significant paintings by aguably the best romantic painter. I personally find it very inspiring. That's what makes art interesing - the different reactions people have to the same work. Witty lama 11:02, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose I googled the image, and the colors vary- this particular color is too orange and the painting itself is boring. Cab02 15:02, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose per jjron. -- moondigger 19:56, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
