SCHLOSS BAU MEISTER. Andreas Schlüter and Baroque Berlin
from: 04.04.2014 to: 13.07.2014
Andreas Schlüter (1659/60-1714) was a Baroque artist par excellence. Celebrated by his contemporaries as the 'Michelangelo of the North', Schlüter was not only a sculptor, but also an architect, town planner, and designer of magnificent interiors which were created to give lustre, for the first time, to the ambitious and emerging royal capital of Berlin. To commemorate the 300th anniversary of his death, the Bode-Museum is now holding the first ever major exhibition to be devoted to this important Berlin artist.
During the reign of Elector Friedrich III (from 1701 Friedrich I, 'King in Prussia'), Schlüter was appointed official court sculptor and was entrusted with a variety of artistic roles in the Prussian capital, during a time when Prussia was emerging as a nascent new power.
This retrospective takes in all aspects of his multifaceted work and, enriched by numerous outstanding loans, recreates the opulent world that this creator of Baroque Berlin fashioned and inhabited. The exhibition in the Bode-Museum runs from 4 April until 13 July 2014 and is spread over a total of 16 galleries and side rooms. On display are not only Schlüter's own works, but also those of the greatest role models of his time, including sculptures by such distinguished artists as Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Francesco Mochi, Francois Girardon, and Antoine Coysevox.
