Cairn in Snow is a landscape painting by Caspar David Friedrich. It was created in 1807. The painting is a Romantic allegorical landscape, showing a pagan burial site between three oaks, near the town Gützkow in Germany. The painter depicts barren trees in the snow, giving the work a haunted, spectral air. The painting with its contemplative melancholy mood is transmitting to us a Romantic view of nature. Trees and forests were seen as symbols of life endurance, longevity and immortality. Sacred groves, often a group of trees in ancient times were associated with secrecy and initiation rites, and they were regarded as untouchable. However, the trees depicted by Friedrich looks abandoned and most of the branches chopped off. Today the painting is in the Galerie Neue Meister in Dresden. It was originally owned by the Greifswald University professor Karl Schildener. The painting is described in 1828 in the Greifswald academicals journal (II, 2, pp. 40–41). Friedrich is noted for his landscapes depicting features silhouetted against the sky, morning mists or Gothic ruins. This work is one of his earliest oil paintings.
