Evening (German - Der Abend) is an 1821 oil on canvas painting by Caspar David Friedrich, now in the Niedersächsischen Landesmuseum Hannover. With Morning, Midday and Afternoon, it forms a series on different times of day.

The whole canvas is filled by a pine forest, with a slightly wavy forest floor in brown-green tones with red blooming flowers and vanishing points to far left and far right. In the foreground is a clearing with pine bushes, a path leading diagonally from the left to centre and two figures in old German costume looking at the red and yellow sunset. Also in the background are light and dark clouds and a low horizon in the background.
