A distant view of Potsdam at sunset


Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour | 31.6 x 43.6 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 920706

Graeb’s theatrical sunset view of Potsdam, framed by trees at left and right, was a present from Prince Albert to his wife at Christmas in 1858. During their stay in Germany earlier that summer, the queen recorded in her journal that ʻPotsdam lit up by the setting sun looked splendidʼ.
