Despite his relative lack of success in later life, Caspar David Friedrich had a considerable impact on younger landscape painters, both in Dresden and elsewhere in northern Germany. In Dresden there were a number of artists, among them Ernst Ferdinand Oehme, who adapted his vocabulary of forms and hard-edged manner.
