Landscapes

The frieze zone in each of the rooms contains narrow pictorial strips, which, with few exceptions, contain topographical images. These include representations of cities, harbours and maritime scenes, famous palaces or simple, pastoral landscapes, featuring many voyagers, travelling people, huntsmen, shepherds and peasants, as well as soldiers and seafarers of all nations. These images convey a vivid impression of the Baroque world and depict many of the places visited by Prince Johann Seyfried and his brother during their three-year Grand Tour throughout Europe.
