“The Fool on the Hill” from the film Magical Mystery Tour (1967)

“Wanderer above the sea of fog” by Caspar David Friedrich (1818). File from English Wikipedia.
This cannot be a coincidence. I believe John Lennon was familiar with Friedrich’s painting already when he studied art in Liverpool, and for sure when the Beatles stayed in Hamburg he saw it in the Kunsthalle.
