Drawing, Design for a Bourgeois Biedermeier Interior, 1853–58

This is a Drawing. It is dated 1853–58 and we acquired it in 1954. Its medium is brush and watercolor, white gouache, pen and black ink on wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Coblenz (Koblenz), Germany on the Rhine River was a tourist mecca, especially after 1842, when King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and Queen Elisabeth took up summer residence in the nearby Schloss Stolzenfels. The furnishings in this drawing date from the 1840s, and the ceramic tile stove features Schinkel-style classical motifs.

Its dimensions are
