Boris Pasternak (1890-1960) was a Russian poet and novelist, who spent most of  his writing life under the autocratic regime of Stalin.  He received the Nobel prize for Dr. Zhivago, but the book was censored in his own country.

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840), a German Romantic artist, is increasingly renowned for his dramatic and often unforgettable landscapes, particularly of sunrises, sunsets, and moonscapes.
