When Friedrich first displayed his finished work in his atelier in Christmas , it apparently followed the arrangement shown in the sketch. One of Friedrich’s closest friends and supporters in Dresden, the Prussian General and military educator Johann Jacob O. A. Rühle von Lilienstern, wrote an account of this exhibition and its circumstances in his epistolary Travels with the Army in the Year . According to him, Friedrich hesitated to show the work to his friends, who wanted to see the canvas in its specially designed frame before the ensemble left Dresden.
Art historians have also suggested that the sun, whose rays illuminate the sky and emanate from around the eye of God on the predella of the frame, might refer to one of Gustav’s personal symbols, the midnight sun. The Cross in the Mountains becomes at once the working instrument of a faith shared by the king and his loyal subject Friedrich, as well as a celebration of northern piety in its political struggle against Napoleon, embodiment of the destructive, secularizing Enlightenment. Political events and the swift demise of Gustav’s rule made Friedrich’s intentions obsolete.
Clearly Novalis could not make them intelligible in conversation, nor did Friedrich know them before he made them real. Tieck insists that the artist realized them autonomously, through his unique genius. Friedrich’s Romanticism, therefore, is not a conscious adherence to a distinct project already understood by the Romantic ideology, but is the partial realization of ideas that previously had been by their very nature obscure and unintelligible. But then does this not describe the very function of the term ‘Romantic’ for the movement that bears this name?
