SIA Inspiration: Caspar David FriedrichPosted: March 4, 2013
I couldn’t do Weekend Round-Up last week because it was a particularly busy week and I had to play catch-up… not that I’m complaining, when you freelance it’s always good to be busy. Anyway, it’s Monday and my turn to pick the inspiration for Style Imitating Art again. Here it is:
This is Caspar David Friedrich’s “The Wanderer Above A Sea Of Fog” (1818). I decided to change it up by something a little more classic and monochromatic, since we’ve had contemporary artists and colorful paintings in the past couple of weeks. Caspar David Friedrich came from Greifswald, my family’s adopted home (both my parents, my sister and her husband studied there for several years; my niece was born there; I spent two very happy summer vacations there), so I always have a soft spot in my heart for his starkly beautiful landscapes. Plus, did you know that this particular painting has inspired a lot of movie posters and even compositions of scenes in Sherlock?
Send me your outfit photos and/or links by Monday, March 11th, and the post will be up by Tuesday. Have a great week!
