In his pictures, the grace of architecture is shown in the context of the beauty of the landscape. Nestled in natural hills, mountains and plains, strong walls rise to sheltering castles. The Prussian architect and painter Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) understood European architecture as a continuation of ancient Greek architecture. Already in the Gymnasialzeit noticed the outstanding musical talent of the originating from Neuruppin pastor's son. After visiting an exhibition of architectural drawings, the young Schinkel decided to take up the profession of architect. He became a pupil of the private building school of Friedrich and David Gilly in Berlin. At the same time he studied architecture at the Berlin Bauakademie and attended lectures at the Akademie der Künste.

At the beginning of the new century, Schinkel was one of the first to pass the specialized civil service examinations that entitle him to work as a construction supervisor or construction inspector. However, due to the financial misery of Prussia in connection with the war against Napoleon around 1800 only a few new building projects could be realized. So Friedrich Schinkel decided after the first construction and planning work, to see the world. His journey took him to Dresden, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Padua, Turin, Palermo, Naples, Lyon and Paris. He returned to Berlin via Strasbourg and Weimar. There he exhibited panoramic pictures inspired by the journey. The admirers of these works also included King Friedrich Wilhelm III. and Queen Luise of Prussia. So Schinkel was commissioned to redesign Queen Luise's bedroom in the Kronprinzenpalais and to design the interior of her rooms in the Berlin City Palace. With this order, he became an interior designer and master builder and the Prussian royal house.

In his position as chief engineer, Schinkel was responsible for making Berlin the representative capital of Prussia. In addition, his responsibility extended to other construction projects from Cologne to Königsberg. Even today, the Königswache, the Schauspielhaus and the Alte Museum in Berlin bear witness to Karl Friedrich Schinkel's work. He became probably the most important architect of classicism and was in friendly contact with his contemporaries like Wilhelm von Humboldt, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Count Hermann von Pückler-Muskau or Clemens von Brentano and in lively intellectual exchange. Even as the architecture took on more and more, Karl Friedrich Schinkel devoted himself intensively to painting. Both arts were inseparable for him. © Meisterdrucke
