  1. Ah, the famous “Prinzessinnengruppe” by Schadow! The original marble version can still today be viewed in the (reconstructed) Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) in Berlin.

    Will Prussian beauties—and of royal blood—like Friederike and Luise ever walk their homeland’s soil again?

    P.S. I think it might be helpful to the general reader, C.T., if you’d give some (basic) background information on the “European Beauty” you present in this category, like naming the depicted places, etc., instead of simply posting seemingly random pictures.

    1. Not random at all. Just click on the pics & you’ll find the places and even names within the URLs.

      1. That’s true, thanks for the tip. Still, I’d prefer a neat little caption, but that may be a matter of taste after all.
