It always makes me unreasonable sad, when people have never seen certain artworks that are so clearly in the canon of Brilliant Art That Everyone Must See/Know.

I mean, how can you not know this one:

It's used an awful lot in books as well.

(I went to a Caspar David Friedrich exhibition a couple of weeks ago in Amsterdam. It was so beautiful! It talked mainly about German landscapes and how before Friedrich it was mainly German painters who painted Italian landscapes and through Friedrich they sort of discovered the beauty of their own country. It had amazing examples.)
