The scantiness of his studio brings this treat out even more. He could be a Zen monk, doing calligraphy, striving for THE perfect line.

Indeed! And Kersting's style, intentional or unintentional, seems to bring that sense out. It seemed to me like a painting from a much earlier era, either like a story illustration by an artist trying for a much older look, or the work of an artist from the early Renaissance -- except for the fact that Friedrich was wearing 19th century dress, of course.
