Ahrendts, Leopold (1825-1870)View of von Hordt'sche Palais

[ translate ]

View of the former "von Hordt'sche Palais", Wilhelmstraße 69, at the corner of Unter den Linden. Early 1860s. Salted paper print with rounded corners. 16,8 x 20,5 cm. Mounted to board (strongly soiled).

Leopold Ahrendts began his career as a painter and lithographer in Dessau, eventually transitioning to photography in the mid-19th century. His photographic oeuvre encompassed urban landscapes and architectural views of Berlin, with an eye for composition and detail. His noteworthy contributions to the field earned him participation in international photographic exhibitions and widespread recognition as an architectural photographer. Between 1818 and 1834, the "von Hordtsche Palais," depicted in the image offered here, served as the Berlin residence of Ernst August (1771-1851), King of Hanover (1837-1851) and 1st Duke of Cumberland. Ernst August was married to Frederike of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the sister of Queen Luise of Prussia. Ernst August's son, later King George V, spent most of his childhood in this residence. The house remained in the state depicted in this image until 1868. when a third floor was added. – Minimal fading in edges, a few scuff marks, small spot in upper sky area, otherwise in very good condition.

Provenance: The estate of Ernst August von Hannover, 3rd Duke of Cumberland
