Moonrise: Soldier and Maiden

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1905, oil on board.

I really love so many things about this painting. The brush strokes add so much depth to the painting, it even adds detail..making the trees leaves look more real. Between that and the swirl of the sky, and the lack of details in the faces, the painting gives a very soft feeling. It's almost like looking through a blurry lens, you want to see more of it, more detail.
