Victoria and Albert admired this view when they visited this palace outside Berlin, home of their son-in-law’s aunt and uncle, and the hosts commissioned a depiction of it as a gift for their guests. The striped awning lends an intimate feel to the watercolour, placing us as spectators on the terrace looking out at the view.
