Artist

Johann Phillip Eduard Gaertner was born on June 02, 1801 in Berlin. He died On February 22, 1877 in Zechlin. As an artist, he is very attached to Berlin. He was appreciated for his exact and vibrant rendition of Berlin’s architecture. His artworks give us an exciting view into life in Berlin in the 19. Century.

Artwork

We are standing here- applied to the painting – at the place where the building with the address Unter den Linden 1 is now located, the building of the Bertelsmann publishing company, and turn the clock back to the year 1855. The Schlossbrücke – the work of Schinkel – crosses the River Spree on the left. Even today, the bridge with its snow-white figures is well-known. The City Palace, re-emerging as the Humboltforum, is in the verge of its topping-out ceremony in June 2015. Here, exactly 160 years ago, we can still see the old Berlin City Palace with its imposing dome in all its glory. That is – we can imagine it, in other words.

Brief description

The view from the front shows a row of neat town houses, which are in line on the other side of the river Spree. Their soft, sandy colour makes them almost appear Mediterranean. Little balconies are protected by the sun by awnings and canopies. Some of the alcoves and balconies project onto the Spree. On our side of the riverbank there are people to be seen. One can see children who play, carts, Ladies with umbrellas, jumping dogs and country constable. On the right is a red brick façade of the Berliner Bauakademie. Also built by Schinkel. Gaertner’s painting is similar to contemporary testimony. In year 1896 the houses near the Schossfreiheit were torn down for space for a monument of the King.
