An 1887 oil painting titled Moonrise in a Romantic Landscape by listed German artist Josef Anton Settegast (1813-1890). This Romantic era painting depicts two figures on a hillside near a Gothic style stone chapel. The artist’s use of dramatic lighting of figures in a majestic natural setting is indicative of the style of the late Romantic era.
