The view of the present painting is a popular one Maximilian Roch returned to several times. In focus on the Lange Brücke, the long bridge over the Spree, is Schlüter’s famous statue of King Frederick I, which can today be seen at Charlottenburg castle. During the Second World War the castle was badly damaged and in 1950 the GDR government decided to have it demolished. In its place the Palace of the Republic, seat of the country’s parliament, was built in the 1970s and demolished sometime after Germany’s re-unification. Since 2012 the project of re-building the castle has taken shape and the so- called Humboldtforum is already crowned with a replica of the dome which had been added to the castle’s chapel in 1850. Soon, Berliners will be able to enjoy a similar view to the one painted by Roch again.
