Carl Gustav Carus, The Goethe Monument - a great admirer of Goethe, Carus's painting of an imaginary Goethe monument is described in a journal as follows. "In a lonely rocky area stands Goethe's sarcophagus, and upon it a harp; moonlight falls through its strings, illuminating two angels who kneel reverently before it. Mists swirl around the base of the monument. It would seem that Goethe's manifold and magical contacts with Nature have inspired the ingenious artist to this Ossianic idea."
