Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Paintings of palm houses. The perfect place to hibernate. Prussian (German). Carl Blechen, artist. Living from 1798 to 1840, Blechen taught landscape painting at the Berlin Academy and worked as a decorator at the Royal Theatre on the Alexanderplatz in Berlin.
These works are all of the Palm House near Potsdam, Germany that had been designed by noted architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel to house the collection of palm trees that belonged to King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
