Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841) was one of the most famous German architects and designers of the nineteenth century. He worked almost exclusively for the Prussian royal family from 1810 until his death in 1841. He was primarily influenced by Neoclassicism, and he also produced works in the Neo-Gothic manner such as pieces commissioned for the Schloss Babelsberg in Potsdam for Prince Wilhelm, as well as the Getraudenkirche and Werdenkirche in Berlin. For a full discussion of the life and work of Schinkel, see M. Snodin, Karl Friedrich Schinkel: A Universal Man, New Haven, 1991.
