Winter Landscape With Church

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840)
Winter Landscape With Church
Museum Fur Kunst Und Kulturegeschichte, Dortmund

Oil On Canvas
13 3/16 Inches By 18 Inches

A virtually-identical version of the painting, also from 1811, is owned by London's National Gallery. Only the Dortmund version was on display at the 2006 Friedrich exhibition in Hamburg.


Our classic winter storm continues.

Many municipalities in the Twin Cities have declared snow emergencies. Over 225 flights at MSP have been cancelled, which may be a record. There were more than 400 traffic accidents in the Twin Cities during the twelve-hour period between 6:00 p.m. last night and 6:00 a.m. this morning, one involving a fatality.

Our church has Christmas Eve services scheduled for 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. None of the services has been cancelled; all will proceed as scheduled.

We may attempt to attend the 3:00 p.m. service.
