Parochialstrasse in Berlin

Eduard Gaertner German

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 807

Gaertner is best known for chronicling the rapidly modernizing Berlin cityscape. This relatively intimate view, culminating in the city's oldest church, the Nikolaikirche, illustrates earlier modes of urban life with evident affection. Two other versions of the composition are known: one is in the Nationalgalerie, Berlin; the other was destroyed during the Second World War.
