Ein glücklicher Fund


Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder (1722-1789) was an important figure for Kassel. His decades of activity as court painter to the landgraves of Hesse-Kassel meant that many works by him are still kept in the historic buildings and various collections of the Museumslandschaft Hessen Kassel today. The rediscovery and restoration of three ceiling paintings from the former landgraves’ palatial residence in Kassel spotlight his work as decorative artist.

For the first time in 200 years, they can now be shown together again. The cabinet exhibition will focus on their original context as well as the history of the restoration.
