Drawing, Apartments of Queen Elizabeth of Prussia, Charlottenburg Palace, Berlin
This is a Drawing. It was created by Elizabeth Pochhammer. We acquired it in 1957. Its medium is brush and watercolor, white gouache, gold paint over graphite on thick white wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This drawing documents Queen Elisabeth of Prussia’s library, study, and breakfast room at Charlottenburg Palace. The interior is an eclectic mix of baroque and rococo furniture from the royal collection and newly fabricated pieces. A rococo-revival carpet, porcelains, and portiere draperies dividing the rooms impart privacy and coziness to this informal bourgeois interior.
