Catalogue Note
From the spring of 1862 through 1865, Menzel used the guard room in Berlin's royal palace as a studio while working on his large scale composition The Coronation of William I. While the room was emptied of a majority of its contents, some Renaissance-era arms and armour remained. The objects inspired Menzel to complete an intriguing series of watercolor and gouaches in late 1865 and early 1866 which were exhibited as Fantasies from the Arms Room (Claude Keisch and Marie Ursula Riemann-Reyher, Adolph Menzel, 1815-1905, Between Romanticism and Impressionism,, New Haven, 1996, pp. 326-8) . The present work is related to this series
