In “The Palm House,” German Realism master Karl Blechen (1798 – 1840) reproduces a dense plant collection resembling an exotic, primitive forest. This huge hothouse, owned by King Frederick William III of Prussia, was the first of its size in Germany, and the prototype for the country’s future hothouses. It melded the building style of the orangeries with the broad, simple shapes of Classicism. The King’s palm house contained the largest plants of any of the era’s gardens. In this piece, Blechen captured the breathtaking, majestic effect created by the combination of enormous architectural and plant forms.
German Realism master Karl Blechen (1798 – 1840) often painted outdoors to portray his subjects as literally as possible. Pursuing art after several years as a banker, Blechen was appointed stage painter at Berlin’s Royal Theater, where he could showcase his remarkable, mysterious style. Influenced by travels through Italy, his works became more relaxed and flowing. Later, he was hired as the Berlin Academy’s Professor of Landscape Painting. Blechen was renowned for his dazzling colors and unusual themes, which made him one of the 19th century’s most influential artists.

      This poster was actually a replacement for one I had had for several years. The original had faded due to where it was positioned, didn't realise quite how much until I compared it with the new one.

        Had it custom framed, and it's absolutely beautiful. It was the inspiration for the rest of my living room decor, including the furniture I ended up purchasing! I bought the print first, because I just LOVED it, and then went forward with all my other remodeling inspiration from there!
