“This May, a friend … was taken from me: my old Friedrich!” – Carus, 1840

“This May, a friend, though one who had been half-dead to me for some time, was taken from me: my old Friedrich! He had painted so many churchyards – he must have felt quite at home there! His paintings will surely find manifold recognition in later times!”
– Carl Gustav Carus
